Yesterday was a really big day for me. I donated some of my books to the Granite Education Foundation–672 books to be exact!
The Granite Education Foundation is a nonprofit serving the needs of over 68,000 students in the Granite School District. Of those served, sixty-five percent are considered at or below poverty level standards. Many of these students do not have books in their homes, let alone a personal copy of any title.
The Foundation helps close to 3000 students during the holidays by providing a warm blanket, winter clothing, school supplies, a new book, socks, and a toy. For these students, without this assistance there would be no holiday and they would return to school not on an equal level as their peers.
