Santa Catalina Lower and Middle School's October service project is an easy, rewarding way to give local children a boost that could change their lives forever.
We are collecting new and gently used books to donate to the Read to Me Project, a Monterey County nonprofit that helps low socio-economic children achieve kindergarten readiness and a lifetime of literacy. Read to Me Project needs a variety of children's books, especially board books and picture books for the youngest readers, as well as chapter books for readers up to eighth grade. Books in English and Spanish are welcome.
Please take a little time to clear those shelves of books your kids have outgrown and we'll give them to a child who needs them. Donation bins are placed around campus.
