The holiday book program at Jones Elementary is a wonderful Greensboro Bar Association tradition—one that has endured almost two years of a pandemic, thanks to your continuous support! Although the holidays aren’t completely back to “normal” this year, the Elementary School Project committee is continuing its fundraising to gift books to the children at Jones Elementary School. GBA member donations will be used to purchase books for the K-5 children in the Traditional English program at the holidays, and for all “graduating” 5th graders in the spring, with any additional funds raised donated to the school’s food bank. Volunteers from the GBA will wrap the books at home or at work, and school staff will distribute the books to the students during the week of December 13.
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 are tax-deductible, with receipts sent to each donor. Thank you in advance for your continuing support – the children and teachers at Jones thank you too!
Because the Holiday Party will be virtual this year, we need volunteers to help wrap books at home! A box of books and wrapping supplies will be delivered to and picked up from your office or residence. Please contact Adam Kerr or Erin Reis to volunteer or for more information.
