G. Stanley Hall students raise nearly $700 for 'All for the Books' coin drive

All for books coin drive

To celebrate Book Fair week, G. Stanley Hall Elementary held a coin drive to benefit a program called “All for Books”. Overall, the students were able to raise $674.33.

The program raises money to buy and get books to children in need through organizations like Kids in Need Foundation and the National Center for Families Learning.

By participating in the program, G. Stanley Hall Elementary will also receive books from the Book Fair for the library and classroom!

Students were encouraged to bring in pennies on Tuesday, nickels on Wednesday, dimes on Thursday, and a quarter or more on Friday.

The three classrooms that collect the most change will receive free books for their classroom library.
