At Wild Plum Center we believe parents are the most important teacher in their student's life. Our job is to enable our families to have the confidence and tools they need to give their student the best education possible. At the start of each school year, each of our families receives a home library, a set of books to use for reading and learning together.
Over the years, we have received an immense amount of support from the community in order to stock the shelves. This year, we would like to thank Kay for collecting over 175 books from her neighbors to share with our students. Kay sent out an email to neighbors and friends asking for book and school supply donations. She then left a storage bin on her front porch where people could drop off donated items. We are floored with the amount of books and school supplies she was able to collect and were compelled to share her bright idea.
If you are dusting off the shelves and find some treasured books that are no longer age appropriate but want to donate them to a good cause, look no further! Books that are written in both English and Spanish are extremely advantageous to our program. Thanks to the Prospect Neighborhood and each of you for your support while we continue building equity through education.
