Where Washington, DC and Everywhere ElseWhen 10/31/2013
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.
