Youth Gathering in Connecticut to Bring a Children’s Library to Pine Ridge Reservation

It was all hands on deck yesterday in Greenwich CT as adults and teens from Greenwich CT, Scarsdale NY, Mamaroneck High School, White Plains High School, Scarsdale Senior Youth Fellowship, and volunteers from surrounding areas met to sort and package books for a children’s library on Pine Ridge.

Monday’s total was 3,388 children’s books loaded into 42 boxes!

Books will be put onto shelves on the Pine Ridge Reservation in April 2014, as part of our Global Youth Service Day project funded, in part, by Youth Service of America and State Farm Insurance!

Please let us know if YOU would like to get involved — we still have about 2,000 books to package and will be organizing another service day again soon!
