Book drive On behalf of a thoughtful 4th grader, the CU Boulder School of Education is hosting a book drive for neighboring school, University Hill Elementary. Please help support our friend Alana Valladares’ cause by donating your new or gently used children’s books in Spanish or English by March 17. Her handmade donation box can be found outside the Dean’s Office on the first floor of the School of Education Building (map).

Alana initiated this project on her own as part of the Families and Educators Together Committee and student council at her school. University Hill will host a family literacy night on March 21 when the books donated by CU Boulder faculty, staff, and students will be delivered to students and families.

Need inspiration? In Alana’s words: "When I am done with giving the books to Uni Hill, the kids will be happy to have new books and your community will be happy to know that they helped an elementary school."
