November Serve: Grace Kids Book Drive
November 1, 2021 - November 28, 2021
Did you now that 2/3 of kids in low-income families don’t own a children’s book?
In 2018, Cleveland had the highest child poverty rate in the country. And the biggest predictor of future academic success for a child? Reading materials in the home. Without books, children can be up to three years behind their classmates.
Grace Kids will be having a book drive for the month of November for the Cleveland Kids Book Bank. You can donate new and gently used children’s books.
Books in highest demand:
• Board books
• Early-Reader books
• Books that highlight diversity
All books will be accepted beside textbooks, dictionaries, and encyclopedias.
You can drop off books Sundays at Grace, or during the week in the donation boxes provided in the lobby areas at both campuses. Pass the word along to family and friends!
