ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The City of Albuquerque needs your help making books available to children in need.
The goal of the “Read to Me” book drive is to collect books for kids in low-income families. This year the group hopes to collect 60,000 new and gently used children’s books.
“There are a lot of schools serving kids who don’t have a lot of books in their own homes so we want to make sure we can bridge that gap and get books into their hands,” said Deborah Hassi, Youth Svcs. Manager with the City of Albuquerque.
The book drive begins today and runs through the end of March.
