The Morehouse College Community Revitalization Initiative (MCCRI) is excited to initiate our StrongStart reading program in Fulton County of Atlanta, GA, and we are looking for book donations! Our mission is “to inspire and secure the future of Atlanta’s youth through literacy and mentorship.” To accomplish this mission, we have been recruiting volunteer mentors to read to students who are in grades 1-3 at the targeted four schools, KIPP WAYS, KIPP STRIVE, Tuskegee Airmen Global Academy, and M. Agnes Jones. We are planning to initiate StrongStart at M. Agnes Jones on January 26th, 2017.
We are encouraging potential donors to donate by January 20th, 2017, however, we welcome donations year-round. The types of books we need are Kindergarten through third grade level picture/story books that are new or gently used.
We thank you for your consideration, and we hope that you will join us in reaching our literacy goals for the children in this community.
Please contact the MCCRI at 404-215-2673 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about our program or to donate books.
