TRUE KNOWLEDGE BOOK DRIVE 2020
We are once again working with African Library Project for our 2020 TRUE Knowledge Book Drive!!
THIS YEAR OUR GOAL: 1,000 BOOKS preschool-8th grade by April 15th!
We are also collecting teacher resource materials such as basic lesson plans, educational posters and games aimed at improving teaching/learnings.
TYPES OF BOOKS they are requesting - (Math, Science, History, Novels, Fictions , Books by and about African Americans, Encyclopedias, Etc)
The other part of our goal is to collect about $500 for shipping.
It takes approximately $250 to ship 1,000 books to the ALP warehouse in New Orleans. These figures are based on about 2/3 paperbacks and 1/3 hardbacks. ( The more hardcover books we send, the higher our mailing costs. ) Then we also send a check for $250 to ALP treasurer to cover a portion of shipping the entire container to Africa.
Here’s where we need your help- You can drop off or send your donation of books or teaching materials to our office at 161 W. Wisconsin Ave. Milwaukee WI ( Suite 1000 LL) 53203 to be shipped to Uganda, Africa by or before May 1st, 2020
