Our goal is to promote literacy and a love for reading among preschool age children.
Our Book Buddies project for the past year was very successful. We began the project in January and completed it in May. We were welcomed by a wonderful staff and very beautiful and inquisitive children at the Northside, Pre-K for SA campus.
This past year, we achieved our goal of reading to 400 students in 20 classrooms and then giving them books to take home. Our project was so successful we were asked by the principal to return this coming school year and we are all very excited about the opportunity to continue to give back to our community.
In order for us to be able to continue with this very worthwhile project we need volunteers to read to the children and donations of books or money to purchase over 500 books for this coming school year.
If you are interested in volunteering or are able to donate books or money to purchase books please contact Joyce Sheiness at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would like to recognize Jordan Berlin, son of Cantor Julie and Rabbi Alan Berlin, for selecting our Book Buddy project as his Bar Mitzvah project.
Jordan collected over 150 books and we are extremely grateful to him for his willingness to help us reach our goal for this coming school year.
