The girls set out do a book drive when school started. Together they collected more than 900 books.
They started by asking their mom to post on social media. They asked people to drop books at their doorstep. They also notified neighbors that they would be picking up books on specific dates. They got a LOT of books!
The drive ran for 3 weeks. There were more than 900 books in all. They then sorted the books. The adult and religious books were separated from the children's books because they go to different places.
The children's books will be added to our efforts to deliver a full lending library to Braddock Street Elementary School in Culver City, CA.

Watts Learning Center is a charter school in South Central Los Angeles serving approximately 400 elementary and 400 middle schoolers. 95% of the students at Watts Learning Center qualify for free or reduced lunch.
We donated more than 1000 books to Watts Learning Center in October 2020. Books were distributed as incentives to student for good behavior and perfect attendance. The school remains closed so we set out to do a book drive to ensure that each child can take home a book.
We are currently collecting books to be distributed in December. Each child will receive an age appropriate, high-interest book.
Volunteers spent countless hours collecing and sorting the books. They sorted by age and gender.
Members of the National Charity League, LA will be helping us wrap books. Each book will be labeled for grade and gender.
These books will likely be the only book the students have ever owned and maybe their only holiday gift.
