Student Council is collecting gently used children's books for Mighty Writers, a nonprofit whose mission is to teach Philadelphia kids (ages 7 to 17) to think and write with clarity so they can achieve success at school, at work and in life. Mighty Writers offers free daily afterschool academies, long- and short-term writing classes nights and weekends, teen scholar programs, mentorships, SAT Prep courses, and college essay writing classes.
There will be bins in both buildings - in the Lombard Street lobby and in the entrances to the preschool and kindergarten rooms - where your family can drop off books. Please remember that it is important that the books are in good condition. The book drive will end on February 13.
