On Saturday, 8/22, Start Lighthouse is partnering with P.S. 5 – Port Morris to host its second book drive! This is a free event for parents and their children in Kindergarten to 8th grade. Attendees will receive a custom literacy kit, created by Start Lighthouse, and is available in English and Spanish. Start Lighthouse has created three different educational kits through a racial justice lens to help improve literacy for children who may not have access to these types of resources.
The founders of Start Lighthouse will be at the event to answer any questions about the kits, or the organization’s mission to end literacy deserts. Face masks will be required, and social distancing measures will be in effect. I’ve listed additional details about the event below!
