Families at Cunningham Park, Shrevewood ES Hold Fundraiser to Help Diversify Classroom Libraries
Cunningham Park and Shrevewood Elementary families with children in grades K-2 created a fundraiser to purchase fiction books featuring people of color (POC) and were written by POC authors, as well as age-appropriate and accurate non-fiction books about POC to donate to their classroom libraries. To give their children an additional opportunity to use their voices to make a difference, they will also be hosting a socially distanced neighborhood booth sale of pre-packaged drinks and snacks in August to continue the fundraising. One goal of the sale is to help diversify the children’s classroom libraries. Contact news liaison Keri Mina at firstname.lastname@example.org.
