This is it. Our final push to collect the 6,000 books we need to reach our goal.
Can we provide 12 books to every child attending a Clarke County elementary school where 90% or more of students qualify for free/reduced-fee lunches?
Yes, if you tell your friends and neighbors. Their books could very well determine whether or not we make our goal.
