You Did It! (Let’s Keep Going)


Brentwooders love books—thank you! In the past two weeks, you have collectively given $200 so that every child in Amanda Snider’s Wonder Years classroom at Fremont can get a new Scholastic book once a month throughout the school year!

Special thanks to FOUR (!) donors who have contacted me to offer to give more if necessary so that no child will be left out. (I am proud to know you thoughtful people.)

We have met our first goal, but why stop there? This is a great opportunity–Scholastic offers a few titles each month for $1 so $10 supports a child’s at-home reading for an entire year—and we know that Amanda will put any extra book money to good use. Please make checks payable to Scholastic Book Club and put it in my mailbox (Butcher/Cline) or mail to the church office by Aug. 15.

Thanks in advance for sharing your love of books!

We’re also still collecting school supplies for students in low-income districts:
