2014 Books at Home Report

In 2014, the Trenton Books at Home Program distributed $4326 worth of books to Trenton students.

 

The Books at Home Program provides free books to Trenton kids. Studies show that when kids have more books in their home, they do better in school—no matter how much they are struggling. You can see one such study from 2010 as published in Science Daily here http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/05/100520213116.htm.

 

Books were handed out with the help of the African American Pride Festival, the Carver Community Center, Ida Malloy’s neighborhood reading program, Isles Youth Build, BOYD, Children’s Futures, Kelli Mitchell’s Hoagies for the Homeless, the Butterfly Effect, Razor Sharp Barber Shop, the Capital City Community Coalition’s, Westminster’s GetSet program, Planned Parenthood, and teachers from Jefferson, Hedgepath, Paul Robeson, Trenton High School West, and the Foundation Academy.

 

Current major supporters include donors honoring the loving memory of Lois Dowey, The I Am Trenton Community Foundation, Councilwoman Marge Caldwell-Wilson, Home Rubber, and Children’s Futures.
