Throughout the DC area, underserved public schools lack adequate resources to teach, often going without safe conditions, necessary repairs, or enough books to go around. Additionally, 61% of the low-income families whose children attend these schools have no access to books at home. These traditionally overlooked schools cannot educate their students with libraries in disrepair and lacking reading materials, leaving both teachers and students without the hope of a challenging education. Books for America builds and stocks libraries in DCs underserved institutions, including public schools, homeless shelters, and senior housing.
Books for Americas current campaign focuses on rebuilding the libraries in two DC-area schools, the Takoma Education Campus at Meyer Elementary School and Ballou Senior High School, with two book drives to raise about 2,500 books for each school. A massive fire destroyed most of Takoma on December 22, 2010, leaving its 300 elementary students without a school or adequate learning materials. In Anacostia, Ballou High Schools library contains only one book for each of its 1,100 students, 10 times lower than the minimum national education standard. Books for America has collected 5,300 books to rebuild these schools libraries but need many more to reach the national basic education standard. Regular access to reference materials and literary works will give DC schoolchildren a chance to achieve a better education and prosperous life.
Join G-Team and donate $12 to help improve childrens access to educational materials by giving books to underserved public school libraries. If G-Team members raise $500, Books for America can host two book drives, raising an average of 5,000 books for two area schools. Each additional $250 raised will fund one book drive.
