2013 Books at Home Report

In 2013, Classics Books distributed $9,871 worth of books to Trenton students through the Books at Home Program.

The Trenton Books at Home Program distributes free books to Trenton kids. Studies show that the more books a student has in their home, the better they do in school and the longer they stay in school. (See Science Daily article at http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/05/100520213116.htm).

Books were handed out with the help of Carver Community Center, Kids R First Daycare, Catholic Charities, Camp Read, Planned Parenthood, the Reading for Success program, Mill Hill Child and Family Development, Passage Theatre after school program, and teachers at Robbins School, the Gregory School, Foundation Academy, Washington Elementary, Trenton High School West, TCHS, Stokes Eleementary, Wilson, PJ Hill, Hedgepath.

Current major supporters include Councilwoman Marge Caldwell-Wilson, Councilwoman Verlina Reynolds Jackson, former Trenton Mayor Douglas Palmer, and Children’s Futures.
