It’s that crazy time of year! Teachers and kids alike counting down the days until summer break. With only a few days left of classes, Book Drive for Kids visited Lewisville Elementary school. This was our largest book giveaway yet, almost 600 students!

What a successful day! Kids ranging from kindergarten to sixth grade, including English as a second language classes, came through and selected books that interested them. The kids were so excited to have us there and couldn’t believe they were getting a book of their very own! We received almost 100 thank you notes from Lewisville ES students. They were so appreciative of our visit. Book Drive for Kids was thrilled to help get books into the hands of these kids and jump start their summer reading.

This was just one more rewarding opportunity for Book Drive for Kids. With each giveaway we hope to impact the lives of children as we promote a love for reading. Literacy provides a strong foundation for educational success, personal confidence and development, and discovery of the amazing world we live in. We want to help kids, especially disadvantaged and English learners, be successful in life…and we are doing it one book at a time.

Please consider partnering with us in our mission. We can only giveaway as many books as we have donated to us. Help us with your donation, both English and bi-lingual books. You will be making a difference in the lives of the future generation!
