Donate to a Virtual Book Drive Benefiting Students in Washington, DC


Washington, DC and Everywhere Else
October 31, 2013

Join Octo Consulting Group, Oliva Consulting, Project 7 Refocus
and the Ward 7 Education Council for the largest book drive in
Ward 7 history! Our goal is to deliver over 20,000 books and
guarantee a new book for every elementary school student in
Ward 7! We’ve targeted Ward 7 because its elementary school
literacy rate is the lowest in the District at under 50%.

This year, we’re partnering with First Book, a national non-profit
organization based in Washington, D.C. that has distributed over
100 million free and low cost books in thousands of underserved
communities across the country. First Book provides access to
new, quality books and educational resources for schools and
programs for children from birth through age 18.

    Books open minds and hearts to worlds unseen. Children can escape to wonderful places and times and transform their lives through the simple act of reading. I am happy to support this cause. I did something.
