Help Our Kids Receive Free Fun Books at the 2019-2020 Foundation Schools Book Fairs!
How can I help?
Make a donation to The Foundation Schools Book Fair Drive during the week of Dec. 2-8, 2019.
How will my donation be used?
Your donation will provide a gift of free, brand-new and current books to our students.
When will the Book Fairs take place?
The Holiday Book Fairs are held December 10-13, 2019 and the Spring Book Fairs in May 2020.
Who will my donation benefit?
Students at the Foundation School in Largo, MD, the Foundation School of Montgomery County in Gaithersburg, MD, and the new Foundation Learning Center in Landover, MD, which has opened this academic year.
Why should I donate to the Foundation Schools Book Drive?
The Foundation Schools is a K-12 nonprofit school that provides a specialized learning environment for children with emotional disabilities and social, emotional, and learning challenges. Our students come from disadvantaged families, meaning that their parents do not have the financial resources to pay for books or support PTA-type fundraising. Therefore, the funding of the Book Fairs thus depends on your efforts.
What kind of books will my donation fund?
The books provide recreational reading as a supplement to instruction. The more fun our students have reading, the more likely they are to improve their reading skills. Favorite books feature the Wimpy Kid character, Pokemon and Lego characters, cars, technology, and superheroes.
Thank you very much for your contribution!
