Summer Slide: LaAmistad Book Drive Fundraiser

What is the Summer Slide?  The summer slide is the term used to describe a decline in reading ability and other academic skills that can occur over the summer months when school isn't in session.  The Saint Veronica's Guild of the Episcopal Church Women at the Cathedral of St. Philip are fundraising to help area programs like the ones below to make a difference.

LaAmistad Summer Book Drive

One example of this fundraiser in action is the LaAmistad Afterschool Program at the Cathedral of St. Philip.  This program currently serves 24 students and provides opportunities for language and reading skill development.  The goal of this book drive is to receive 120 donated books so that each child may choose five books of their very own to encourage continued reading over the summer.

We made our goal!  Thank you so much for helping the children in our LaAmistad program!
