Book Drive

Book Drive

For three weeks students, faculty, and staff members at ASU collected NEW books for the "One Family, One Book" Book Drive. Our goal was to donate one book for each family with children attending ASU to the children at the Veloo Foundation Children of the Peak Sanctuary (kindergarten). Most books were in Mongolian and met the criteria that the Kindergarten requested. This was a WHOLE school effort with students, faculty, and staff members from both the Elementary and Secondary schools participating. We partnered with local bookstores to offer discounts to book buyers increasing our donations. We are proud to say that we delivered 475 (more than the 428 book goal!) to the kindergarten on Friday, February 9th. Ten ASU high school students delivered the books and spent time reading, sharing lunch, and playing with the children. What could be better than sharing the magic of books? Thanks to everyone who contributed to this worthy cause!.
