Children’s Book Bank Retirement Party
August 17, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Celebrate SVP’s partnership with The Children’s Book Bank (CBB) and give the gift of reading! Join us on August 17 for a group book cleaning effort at CBB and stay to raise a glass in celebration of all we have accomplished together.
The mission of The Children’s Book Bank is to increase the chances for children to succeed as future readers, learners, and citizens by filling their homes and lives with quality books. When books are readily available at home, children spend more time reading—with their parents or on their own—developing the literacy skills needed to succeed in school. This, in turn, leads to improved education for all students, higher literacy and graduation rates, and stronger communities.
This is especially crucial in low-income neighborhoods where the ratio is one book for every 300 children.
Through a partnership with SVP, CBB has built its capacity to have an even bigger impact on the literacy rate of the local community. Come learn about our progress and celebrate our successes!
