Book Drive

Our book drive began with the Buy your Child a Book Conference that will took place in Santa Monica on November 6, 2010. It featured some of the most respected contributors in their fields, the program offered new information on current heroes of color literature for the classroom, presentations by established authors, the corporate support of Barnes and Noble Booksellers, and innovative approaches to storytelling by some of Hollywood's most notable producers.There was a great turnout and everybody had a great time. This drive has founded a library at YouthBuild Pasadena Charter School. We will definitely be holding other book drive events in the future.
