Peninsula PTA Book Drive — Donate Your Books to Help Students in Need

/ Monday, November 4th, 2013 / No Comments »

Peninsula PTA is helping to lead the PPS Fall Book Harvest in our neighborhood from November 4 – November 22.

Please bring your new and gently read books to benefit PPS students that do not have books to read in their homes. This is one of the best things we as a community can do collectively to increase the love of reading and better our student’s reading skills and reading and comprehension scores.

Thanksgiving is the perfect time to show our children that giving to others is its’ own reward!

The goal is 400 books. If each Peninsula student could bring in one or two gently read or new books, we could reach over 400 books, which would serve 40 students in need! Imagine how many more we can gather if our friends, family and other community members join us in the Fall Book Harvest!! For middle school and high school students this is a great way to share those childhood books they loved so much and make way for more current books on their shelves.
Reading is a gift that can foster life-long learners.

Please join the Peninsula PTA in looking around your home “harvest” books to give to PPS students in need.

We welcome new and used books in the following categories:

  • Board Books, Read aloud Books and Picture Books (including Dr. Seuss, Eric Carle, etc.)
  • Early reader books and easy chapter books
  • Non-fiction books
  • Books in Spanish
  • Any book for school-age children

* We cannot use magazines, encyclopedias, textbooks, coloring books, damaged books or adult books *

Simply gather your books, and drop them off Monday-Friday, November 4-November 22 in the book collection boxes located in the front entryway of Peninsula K-8: 8125 N. Emerald, Portland.
The Peninsula P take care of the rest!
