The holiday book program at Jones Elementary is a wonderful Greensboro Bar Association tradition. As the gift-giving season draws near, we hope you will make a donation 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. We will purchase the books from the Scholastic Book Fair at Jones Elementary, which also serves as a school fundraiser. We will invite you to help wrap the books in colorful paper at our Annual Holiday Party and deliver them to the children in December.
This year we are hoping to receive a $500 matching grant from the Greensboro Bar Association Foundation, which will make it possible to also purchase books for the 5th graders at Jones as a graduation gift this 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
We are accepting donations from now until the Holiday Party but encourage members 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!
