The Junior League of High Point 2020-2021 New Member class is collecting donations to sponsor a summer reading book for all rising 3rd graders enrolled in High Point public schools. In partnership with the Bikes for Kids Foundation and Guilford County Schools (GCS), the new members will be distributing over 1,000 summer reading books and recording a video for students to read along with at home. Included with the books is an insert that links to resources for reading at home.
The Bikes for Kids Foundation has impacted over 61,000 economically disadvantaged children since 2002. Their focus is to provide character building books and classroom instruction while rewarding the student’s reading and completed essay with a bike and helmet.
The New Member Class has a fundraising goal of $2,000 to purchase books for the students. If you would like to donate to support this initiative, please complete the form below and place "JLHP New Member Project 2021" in the comment section.
We are excited to have you join us in supporting reading and literacy in our community!
