DONATE YOUR BOOKS THIS MLK DAY
In the United States, 250,000 juveniles do not have regular access to library services while either incarcerated or detained. More than one-third of juvenile offenders read below the fourth grade reading level and about two-thirds of prison inmates are high school dropouts. With this in mind, it is crucial to recognize the need for libraries and literacy in juvenile correctional facilities. The inclusion of libraries and literacy programs in JDC are a vital component in providing incarcerated youth with the knowledge, skills and motivation to educate themselves and bring rates of criminal recidivism down as well as the disproportionate numbers of incarcerated youth that is made up of mostly racial minorities.
This event is being held to collect great books for young people that have limited access to the literary tools they need to open their imagination and expand their minds.
They will be donated to the Juvenile Justice Services Department of CYFD and administered to youth at Camino Nuevo and YDDC Correctional Facilities in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
*PLEASE DROP ALL DONATIONS OFF EARTH CARE AT LA ZONA, AT THE CORNER OF JAGUAR AND COUNTRY CLUB ROAD ANYTIME THIS WEEK
