BOOK DRIVE BENEFITING FAMILY CONNECTIONS
Family Connections is a community-based organization that provides free, parent participatory, play-based educational services to San Mateo County children and their families. Each year Little Wonders runs a book drive to collect English and Spanish bilingual books for Family Connections children to receive at their end-of-year graduation. If you would like to help in this effort, please consider ordering an English or Spanish bilingual book or two through Scholastic using Little Wonder’s activation code and having them shipped directly to Little Wonders. You’ll be helping Family Connections and Little Wonders at the same time! Alternatively, you can drop off English and Spanish bilingual books for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers at Little Wonders during the End-of-Year Celebration or the first week of May.
What: English & Spanish Bilingual Book Drive benefiting Family Connections
When: Now through May 7
How: If ordering through Scholastic:
- Go to Scholastic and select your books! Or go here to see a curated list of bilingual books offered through Scholastic.
- Add books to your cart and then check-out using activation code GKC39.
- Select to have the books shipped to Mireille at Little Wonders.
Or, drop off bilingual books for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers at Little Wonders during the End-of-Year Celebration on 4/24 or the first week of May. And thank you!
Thank you to those who have stepped up to help next year! We still need a few more board members for next year! The board meets once per month and we have a lot of fun while ensuring the school runs smoothly. Our treasurer position is open and we are looking for an experienced and committed community member to fill this spot. If you know someone, perhaps a grandparent or relative with accounting experience, that would like to be involved please share this opportunity.
