Read to Feed Awards Ceremony
Books and a Blanket and the Brazos Valley Food Bank are pleased to announce the Read to Feed Awards Ceremony. The event will be held on Saturday, August 15, at the George Bush Library Orientation Theater, from 6:00-7:00. Please join us to learn how much money was raised during the read-a-thon and who read the most books over the summer. We look forward to seeing you there.
The Read to Feed Read-a-Thon
Books and a Blanket is partnering with the Brazos Valley Food Bank to accomplish two important objectives: promoting summertime reading among children, and raising funds for the Brazos Valley Food Bank's capital campaign. We are doing so through the Read to Feed Read-a-Thon. Children gather donations for each book they read over the summer, and the monies go to help feed those experiencing hunger in the Brazos Valley.
How do I get started?
Participation is easy.
- Register your child in the Read to Feed Read-a-Thon by completing this form. Email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or send it to: Brazos Valley Food Bank; 1514 Shiloh Avenue; Bryan, Texas 77803.
- Ask friends and family to support reading by pledging money for every book read over the summer. You can keep track using this Sponsorship Form.
- Read over the summer, enjoying all the wonders books have to offer. Keep track of the books using this Reading Log.
- Collect the money from those who pledged, and return it by August 15, 2015 to: Brazos Valley Food Bank; 1514 Shiloh Avenue; Bryan, Texas 77803
Register today, because summer is just around the corner. We will provide regular updates throughout the summer, as will our longtime and loyal sponsor, KBTX. We will also have prizes for the students who read the most books and those who raised the most money.
We look forward to learning about all of the wonderful books you are reading.
