Last week, the Change for Kids office received a generous flow of children books ranging from picture and pop-up books to early level chapter books. Two local companies, WNS Global Services and Cohn and Wolf worked with Change for Kids to reach out to the community and give underprivileged kids the gift of a great book.
All donations will be distributed between our four partner schools (P.S. 73, P.S. 154, P.S. 160, P.S. 243) and will impact 200+ students. Change for Kids believes that all children deserve an equal educational opportunity. By providing each child with their own book to take home, we hope to develop an early love of reading. All children can benefit from using their imaginations and discovering the power of a great read. The WNS Cares Foundation asked each participant to donate a copy of their favorite childhood book. We found this theme very fitting because by providing your favorite childhood book to an underprivileged child means you are also providing them with their own childhood favorite. A huge thanks from Change for Kids to all involved.
