Book It Forward Book Drive
Need to make room on your bookshelves for more books?  Here is a great way to make it happen.  SunRidge is going to "book it forward". Starting next week SunRidge Media Center will be holding a Book Drive. A  gently used book will be collected and then they will be given to Just I Book, an organization that puts books in the hands of needy families and kids. Just 1 Book has donated thousands of other books to other needy areas and programs, including Headstart Programs and other community organizations.  Just 1 Book will continue to collect and distribute books to children in need, as long as there are kids who want to read. Drop off boxes will be in the main office and the media center.
