2012 Trenton Books at Home Report

The Trenton Books at Home program, which distributes free books to Trenton kids, gave out $4,412 worth of books in 2012.

The program was made possible by our fiscal sponsor Children’s Futures and generous donations from people, including The Fund for Public Schools, Councilwoman Marge Caldwell-Wilson, Councilwoman Verlina Reynolds-Jackson, and former Mayor Doug Palmer.

Many books would be picked up by Trenton kids at the store including kids from Kilmer, Parker, Trenton Central High School, Village Charter, Trenton High West, PJ Hill, and Robbins.  Other books were distributed by partners like A Better Way, the Children’s Futures Holiday Book and Toy Drive, Mill Hill Aftercare, a book distribution center at Trenton High West and teachers throughout the Trenton school district.
