Donations Still Needed for the Annual Elementary School Holiday Book Program
The holiday book program at Jones Elementary is a wonderful Greensboro Bar Association tradition. The gift-giving season is now upon us and we need your 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 invite you to help wrap the books in colorful paper at our Annual Holiday Party and deliver them to the children in December. It is truly a joy to see the kids’ excitement when the books are unwrapped!
This year we will receive a $500 matching grant from the Greensboro Bar Association Foundation if we can raise at least $500 in member donations. 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. If you have any questions regarding the book drive, please contact Adam Kerr at [email protected] or (336) 500-7599.
To date, donations receipts are a little slow so we ask all to support this wonderful program. Thank you in advance for your continuing support – the children and teachers at Jones thank you too!
