Scholastic invites participation in ClassroomsCare program
| Sep 20, 2010
Since 2001, Scholastic Book Clubs' ClassroomsCare program, a philanthropy-based literacy campaign, has been encouraging children to read while also giving something back to the community. This year’s theme is “United States of Reading,” and the challenge is for students to read 10 books per student per classroom.
If this goal is accomplished, then it would lead to one million books being donated to kids in need. In order to distribute these books, ClassroomsCare partners with charities such as Reach Out and Read, Save the Children, and newly added this year, The Pajama Program. Since 2001, more than 10 million books have been donated.
Any classroom in the United States can take part in this program either through Scholastic Book Clubs or the Scholastic website. To learn more about this initiative, visit the Scholastic website.
