Lambda Pi Eta, the honor society of the College of Communication and the Arts, launched its second annual Children’s Literacy Book Drive this week, collecting books for the MLK, Jr./ 13th Avenue School in Newark.
Boxes have been placed in five locations across campus for the Seton Hall community to donate new and used books for ages Pre-K to Young Adult. The school’s 653 public school students, who are in Pre-K to 8th grade, are anticipating the arrival of their much-needed books to be used by teachers in the classrooms and in the school library.
The goal is to collect 700 books – enough for every student in the school. Look for book donation boxes in the basement and first floor of Fahy; in the Living Room in the University Center, in the lobby of Jubilee; and in the Library.
This is Lambda Pi Eta’s second Children’s Literacy Book Drive. Last year, the honor society collected over 500 books from the generous SHU community for Christ the Teacher School in Fort Lee. The books were hand-delivered by honor society students and received by smiling students in grades K-8th grade at Christ the Teacher School.
