The “Chat and Chew” Book Club: Help Hope-Hill Launch It!

Paula Morris, Media Specialist at Hope-Hill Elementary, is asking for our help in launching the “Chat and Chew” Book Club. Donations in any amount are needed to purchase fiction books for club members.

According to Ms. Morris, “Our students love to read.” However, low family income make it virtually impossible for many Hope-Hill kids to have books of their own at home. While it’s the norm for most kids from middle and higher income families to have books and other reading materials at home, this is not the case for many Hope-Hill kids.

When students become Chat and Chew Book Club Members, they receive an age and grade level appropriate book of their very own! Club membership is approved by each child’s teacher and their parent(s).

Special Note: Donations received by Saturday, December 14th are matched dollar-for-dollar by Disney. Don’t delay! Make your donation today!

Reading is fundamental to achieving career success and in becoming a life-long learner. By helping with the launch of the “Chat and Chew” Book Club, you are creating an opportunity for Hope-Hill kids to have a meaningful, satisfying life.  Thank you for considering this request.
