Senior Organizes Book Drive for Local Nonprofit
Senior Simon Yarmowich, working with Service Learning Coordinator Mrs. Jenny Green, recently organized a book drive in support of the local nonprofit organization Children Read in Atlanta. Simon facilitated morning announcements during the month of April at the Upper School and collected more than 700 gently used children’s paperback and hardback books for donation.
In an effort to encourage literacy in children, Children Read collects books to distribute, free of charge, to lower income families who lack easy access to books. Since the pandemic, that has led to the cancelation of school book fairs and other annual book drives, Children Read has recently experienced a decline in donations.
