Entravision New Mexico, Hinkle Family Fun Center, ABQ RIDE and City of Albuquerque partner to collect children’s Books for the 2016 Read to Me Book Drive
The community is invited to bring new and gently used children’s books to help “stuff a bus”. Donners will receive 2 free mini golf games courtesy of Hinkle Family Fun Center. Entravision will be broadcasting on site from 10am-12noon.
The citywide book drive began February 15 and runs through March 31, 2016 with a special Stuff the Bus event on April 2nd . The goal of the book drive is to collect 60,000 books and distribute them to children from low-income families. The Read to Me Book Drive, through the collection and donation of books to children, builds a foundation for developing literacy skills. Elementary school children from families with limited resources will receive books along with community groups that serve primarily low income families.
Read to Me invites everyone to help kids start reading and never stop by contributing to the Read to Me Book Drive.
