Women & Philanthropy at The University of Toledo is partnering with the Judith Herb College of Education to help provide books to 40 second-grade classrooms in the Toledo Public Schools.
Last year, the organization’s Holiday Project raised enough funds to donate 1,000 books to 33 second-grade classrooms in 19 of the 40 TPS elementary schools.Women & Philanthropy is getting an early start on this year’s project and is accepting donations through Tuesday, July 31.
With the help of donations from the community, Women & Philanthropy hopes to provide $200 worth of books to the second-grade classrooms in the remaining 21 TPS elementary schools before the academic year starts.
In order to do so, $8,000 in donations will be needed.
The Holiday Project is also accepting good-as-new used children’s books at second- and third-grade reading levels.
To make a donation to the cause, checks can be made payable to the UT Foundation with “2018 W&P Holiday Project” in the memo line and sent to:
Driscoll Alumni Center, MS 301
2800 W. Bancroft St.
Toledo OH 43606
New or gently used books may be dropped off to Metzger in Driscoll Alumni Center Room 2014A.
