Donate new and gently used children’s books

By Robert Hamilton….
Landmark Education graduates have created an exciting project to make sure that all children have the gift of books.

Books will be collected and distributed to children who do not have their own books at home to encourage reading and promote literacy from the early ages in a family setting. Any family with older children who have outgrown their earlier books can contribute to this collection. New books also are greatly appreciated.

On Nov. 18 the books will be provided to schools that are known to have children whose families do not have the means to purchase their own books.

Collection boxes illustrating children reading are located throughout the Tri County area and book donations will be accepted at the following Miami-Dade County locations: 1400 Biscayne Center, 1444 Biscayne Blvd. in Miami, and New York Roma Pizza, 2985 McFarlane Rd. in Coconut Grove.

Also, if you have a large amount of books in a specific location, call the following contacts to arrange pickup: Hilary Andalman, email to Hilary@mygreatlifecoach.com or call 305-962-6097, or Leti Cadavid, email to lettyon@bellsouth.net.

Take a look around your home, in your children’s rooms; ask your friends, family, neighbors and colleagues, and help collect as many books as possible. Know that each and every book will make a difference.
