The LEAD Foundation, Inc., a metro-area nonprofit, is teaming up with their Metro-Atlanta community partner to expand support for their Metro-Atlanta site for their community initiative, #TheLiterarcyProject. Their site is located at the New Horizon Recovery Ministry of Teen Challenge in Loganville, GA (5835 Highway 20).
The focus of the program is to help establish reading programs or enhance existing ones for students (Grades K-12) and adults. The Loganville site is one of three pilot sites for the program (the other two locations are in Winston-Salem, NC and Chicago, IL).
New and slightly used books are preferred for the drop-off date. In lieu of a book donation, a gift card for an area bookstore (i.e. Barnes and Noble) or online service (i.e. Amazon.com) are accepted. The topics and related content areas needed are in the areas of autobiographies, Black History, GED resources, leadership training, greenhouse growing, business and entrepreneurship, Biblical studies, poetry, music, grant writing, government/political science, and automotive repair.
All donations are housed at the center with the larger focus of establishing their own library to serve the residents. Gradual development of community read-in’s, lectures, and other programs are focusing on providing development of the bridge between reading, vocabulary acquisition, writing, public speaking, and critical/creative thinking. Donations may be made on Mondays, Tuesday, Thursdays, and Fridays from 8am-5pm.
