Annual 3rd-Grade Emanuel Book Drive --Last Chance to Donate

The Annual 3rd-Grade Community Service Project--The Emanuel Pediatric Cancer Unit Book Drive has been held over for ONE MORE WEEK. Over the past twelve years nearly 15,000 books have been collected by TIS students and donated. The books are used as rewards for children who attend their (often painful) cancer treatments. All four third-grade classes will be working together to gather, count, and deliver the books to Emanuel Hospital. The delivery will cap off their efforts in the form of a field trip to Emanuel at the end of May.

The TIS Library Adult Book Drive has graciously allowed us to commandeer their collection bins for our efforts. You can find the bins in the Main Building, Stearns' Hall, and at Arthur/Corbett. We can accept gently used or new books for all reading levels and in any language--although English and Spanish are the most popular. You may also leave any adult books in the bins and they will be delivered to the TIS Library for their on-going Book Drive (the library committee sells them to generate cash for new TIS library books & services.).
