I AM PARTICIPATING IN Generosity Brooklyn
IN SUPPORT OF Behind the Book
$644 RAISED
$700 GOAL
Hello fellow book nerds!
I've been involved with Behind The Book for two years, and have had a chance to see firsthand, just how valuable the work of this organization is.
Our programs take place in public school classrooms in low-income neighborhoods, where 75% or more of the students qualify for free lunch.
BTB inspires these students to love reading by bringing accomplished authors and their books, as well as volunteers in to classrooms, with innovative literacy programs.
Just $50 provides books to four students, and $100 provides books for a classroom library!
BtB has served over 12,000 students since 2003 and has donated over 20,000 books. I may have exceeded my goals for this 5K, but there is still more work to be done! Please consider donating! If we meet our team goals for this 5K, we'll be able to create programs that serve a few hundred more students!
THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
