Reach Out and Read Book Collection - Grade 7 Community Service Project

Funding has been eliminated for the Reach out and Read program which targets at-risk kids by providing a book at each pediatric visit from ages six months to five years, and by training doctors and nurses to encourage reading. One of the offices affected by the loss of the program is Quincy Pediatrics. 

Grade 7 is organizing a new book drive to temporarily provide Quincy Pediatrics with new books for these at risk babies. 

If everyone in the school brought in at least one book, we could provide at least 20 babies with a book for each of their 10 check -up appointments to age 5. 

During the month of March, please bring in as many new books as you wish for children ages 6 months to 5 years. The lower wing should try to bring books for ages 6 months to 2 years and the upper wing should bring books for ages 2-5 years. 

There will be a collection box at Literacy Night and also in the school lobby, at the back door and in each classroom. 

Thank you in advance for your participation!
