The San Fernando Gardens Community Center (SFG), a YPI program site that supports the residents of the San Fernando Gardens Housing Complex and community members in Pacoima, has teamed up with The Literacy Club to fundraise for its Literacy for Life Book Box Campaign that would provide SFG with 1,600 bilingual books on site, available to all residents - children, teens and adults.
We appreciate all donations! If you donate $1,250, or the equivalent of one book box (which includes 200 books), we will engrave the box with your name or the name of your organization!
The Book Box project is headed by the Promise Scholar program, which is an academic and mentorship program helping low-income high school students attend and graduate college. The Promise Scholars will not only care for the book boxes, but will also hold reading circles with kindergarten and elementary school students to promote the development of literacy skills.
Each book box cart is custom made from high-quality wood and will be designed in fun Disney and Pixar movie themes!
- Promise Scholars Book Box

The book boxes will be located around the seven playgrounds at SFG, as well as one in the indoor library. The books will also be replenished yearly.
Donate today to support the literacy of Los Angeles students. Reading is believing!
