In just two weeks, the Camp Fire in Northern California has destroyed more structures than the state’s other seven worst wildfires combined. Everything has been destroyed and lost for so many families and businesses.
Since we are called to be a light in this world, to be set apart, and to show the love of Christ, we, as an entire school are going to show the love of Christ through BOOKS! We do not want you to go out and buy new books, but we are asking for you to prayerfully go through your collection of books and to donate anything you think would be helpful to replenish the collection they lost. We have been in contact with a kindergarten teacher from up north, and we have made arrangements with her to drive the books up there to replace classroom libraries, school libraries, and family home libraries. Please know that any donation you make is a blessing, and we are beyond blessed to be able to help them in this manner. This book drive is only a small part we can contribute to in the midst of a very large problem.
Our goal is to collect over 1,000 books in 4 days… and we need YOUR HELP!!!!
Book Collection (Picture books, chapter books, informational books, any kind for any age)
We will be counting the books daily to see who the winner is! Groups will be divided into:
K-2nd | 3rd-5th | Junior High | High School
Monday, January 14th – Thursday, January 17th
K-5th | Bring your books to your classroom.
Junior High | Bring your books to E212 before school.
High School | Bring your books to your 2nd period class.
All other donations | Bring donations to the School Office.
Because God calls us to help those in need and to be a light!
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” – Matthew 5:14-16
