The Annual Trenton Books at Home Program Fund Raiser

The Annual Trenton Books at Home Program Fund Raiser has arrived. The Books at Home Program provides free books to Trenton kids and donors like you have helped make that possible. In 2013, we distributed almost ten thousand dollars in books.We hope to beat that this year.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.

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

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 Elementary, Wilson, PJ Hill, and Hedgepath.

Current major supporters include Councilwoman Marge Caldwell-Wilson and Children’s Futures.

The Trenton Books at Home Program has been recognized by the Trenton Public Education Foundation and the Isles Sprit of Community Award.
