Donations Needed for the Annual Elementary School Holiday Book Program
The holiday book program at Jones Elementary is a wonderful Greensboro Bar Association tradition. As the gift-giving season draws near, your donation is needed to keep this worthwhile program going.
With the support of member donations, the Elementary School Project committee will give books to the K-5 children in the Traditional English program at Jones Elementary School downtown. Books are purchased from the Scholastic Book Fair at Jones Elementary, which provides additional financial benefit to the school. You are also invited to help wrap the books at our Annual Holiday Party and deliver them to the children in December. As anyone who has helped hand out the books to the students will tell you, the sheer joy on the children’s faces when receiving the gifts makes this one of the most rewarding of GBA endeavors.
The Project must raise approximately $2,000 to purchase books for both the holiday gifts and for “graduating” 5th graders at Jones in the spring. Donate now online or mail your check made payable to the Greensboro Bar Association Foundation, with “Elementary School Project” in the memo line, to:
Greensboro Bar Association Foundation
P.O. Box 1825
Greensboro, NC 27402
Donations will be accepted from now until the Holiday Party, but members are encouraged to act before November 30 so that books can be ordered through Scholastic. Donations are tax-deductible, with receipts sent to each donor. If you have any questions regarding the book drive, please contact Adam Kerr at [email protected] or (336) 500-7599.
Thank you in advance for your continuing support ––– the children and teachers at Jones thank you too!
