Blessings in a Backpack Summer Reading Book
The volunteers with Blessings in a Backpack who have been going to Hendricks Avenue School each week to pack the nutritious weekend food items would like to include an age appropriate book for each of our 70 Blessings children to start their summer reading. To select the best and most appropriate books for each child, we have asked each teacher to provide the child’s gender, reading level and any other pertinent information about a special interest (dinosaurs, dogs, princesses, etc.) The volunteers will shop for the best books using this information. The selected books will be ready for each teacher for her/his students on Wednesday morning, May 30 when we pack the final Blessings food packets for the school year.
If you would like to support our idea to provide books to these kids please consider dropping a small donation in a Books for Blessings Kids box at the Book Store table. We estimate the cost of the books will average $6.00 a book. Any amount will be appreciated. Thanks for considering this special ending for our efforts to fight child hunger.
