IMPACT PROPOSAL for “Bookshelves Full of Love”
Mission of Read and Feed – to strengthen literacy skills among under-served elementary school children and provide meals in a nurturing neighborhood
Hold Year Round SHBHU Book Drives – This team will volunteer to collect books at all Compassion Meetings and any other event we organize as we do with food donations.
Volunteer- This team will volunteer for Read and Feed year round Book Drives to pass out books to children in need like we did at Wake Forest last year.
Mobile Classrooms -This team will volunteer to clean up READ and FEED mobile classrooms. We were personally asked if we could help with this by Read and Feed
We would clean, stock and prepare the READ and FEED mobile classrooms for programs by packing book bundles for students and also putting together book bundles to be sent out to youth in need in our community.
- Stocks mobile classrooms using a checklist of kitchen and cleaning supplies, take-home books, student incentives and other materials
- Organizes curriculum, books, etc. for that evening’s session
- Cleans as needed, including, sweeping, dusting, mopping, vacuuming
Building ”Bookshelves Full of Love” – This team will also build bookshelves throughout the year at various times and holidays for various nonprofit friends including Read and Feed, Gigi’s Playhouse, Esther House and Habitat for Humanity. If you have any ideas of other places please suggest them.
$28/shelf plus cost of paint – Donation contribution request would be $5 per participant which will cover most of the cost of each shelf for groups of 5. We can get our members, Green Hope SHBHU Club, our athletic teams, friends and family who are interested to participate and donate.
Teams: Building projects could be done with at least 5 people per bookshelf because 5 pieces that need to be painted uniquely and individually or as a theme.
Meet up in November: Will will build and/or paint at the November meetup.
Promote Amazon Book List below: Amazon lists are already created for Read and Feed but we can also create one for the Esther House and Habitat for Humanity.
