A Cozy Place to Sit & Read – new furniture and books for our classrooms

In August 2016 we moved into our new permanent facility in the Fort Totten neighborhood of DC. We finished this project on budget and on time. Coming with us to our new home was all of our well used furniture. We are now working to outfit our classrooms with new furniture and more books that are reflective of the diverse student population that we serve. 

On Giving Tuesday, we are kicking off a campaign to raise $10,000.00 for new classroom furniture and books.  All donations, large and small, help us reach our goal.   Make a contribution online through the Network for Good.  Consider a donation of $25, $100, $500 or more to help us reach our goal.  Any amount makes a difference.

Please support this effort. 
THANK YOU!
