We are excited to announce that our “Hooked on Books” effort collected OVER 20,000 BOOKS THIS YEAR!
18 elementary and middle schools participated in this area-wide book drive, and the winning school was Clear Creek Elementary! They collected over 16 books per student! WOW! GREAT JOB!
Clear Creek Elementary will receive $250 to go towards new books for their school library and one lucky class will have a pizza party.
Over half of the books collected from Hooked on Books will go to ROR-KC waiting rooms, where all children are able to take home a book each time they visit their health-care provider. The rest of the books are being distributed to agencies, schools and churches throughout the KC area who make sure the books go to deserving families.
Thank you to all of the participating schools and volunteers!
