Boston KinderHarvest Gets Underway

As a volunteer with a 3-year program for 6, 7, and 8 grade inner city youth with focus on literacy, life skills and tennis here in Boston, as well as helping out at a local elementary school and boys and girls club, I see the need for getting interesting reading materials to children every day. I also want to focus on helping shelters and food banks because that seems to be a very dire need.

Here are some of my initial ideas and efforts:

  • Loogootee Elementary

    School
    Loogootee, IN
    Serving male and female students from kindergarten to third grade.
    Needs: Enough magazines for 1-20 low level readers and 1-20 medium level readers from the months of August through June.
