Sixth Annual Back to School Book Donation
Thanks to our family members, friends and supporters in the community, Mom to Madre was able to donate 25 “Bags of Books,” each bag containing 10 new and “like new” books for children to Ocean Beach Elementary School in San Diego, on September 10th. The books will be given to kindergartners who the teachers find need books at home. Each bag also contains at least one nonfiction and one bilingual or Spanish book. We also delivered 48 new children’s mini books to the Ocean Beach Elementary preschool, as well as three wonderful children’s books for the classrooms.
This is our 6th Annual “Back to School” book donation to Ocean Beach Elementary School. We know that having books at home is essential for school success, and for developing strong readers. It gives Mom to Madre great pride to help “level the playing field” for the youngest students. Happy reading kindergarten and preschool families!
