Belvoir Elementary Book Drive

$1,105 of $800 goal

Adam Johnson  GREENVILLE, NC

Belvoir Elementary School is located in Greenville, North Carolina, a few miles down the road from where I attend East Carolina University.  My classmates in my graduate program are prospective teachers, and we are embarking on a community service project--a book drive to collect books for these children.

Belvoir Elementary serves a rural community in Pitt County, and when it comes to resources for these students, the need is great.  Most classrooms don't have enough books for their students.  Teachers often spend much of their own limited incomes, but there is only so much that they can do.

Our book drive will be held on July 21st.  We will collect children's books (K-5) for most of the day at two different locations.  These books will go directly to the classrooms at Belvoir Elementary and into the hands of students who need them.

For those of you unable to donate books, this page is for you. Would you be willing to support our cause with a donation? We plan to use 100% of the money we raise here to buy additional books to add to the drive.  Your contribution will provide books to students from low-income families--students who love reading and are eager to learn.

Thank you so much for your help!

WE'VE EXCEEDED OUR GOAL BY $235!!!!!

This page has been shared 202 times, and 331 people have visited it. We collected 22 donations totaling $1,035 in 11 days.

That is HUGE! We're going to be able to do so much to help the teachers and students at Belvoir Elementary.

I firmly believe that the earlier we can put books into the hands of young readers and get them to love reading, the more their lives will benefit as a result. Reading stretches their imaginations, promotes critical thinking, and instills in them a love of learning that will continue into adulthood.

Thank you all so much for caring about this cause. So many kids are going to have access to great, quality books because of YOU.

I have been handed a check from one of the most remarkable and inspiring women I know. I am completely overwhelmed by her generosity; her donation, as you can see, is sizable. I'm speechless and so grateful.
