Several student groups from Concordia University Wisconsin are sponsoring a diverse book drive to benefit two Lutheran K-8 schools in the Milwaukee area.

A wide selection of diverse literature in the classroom helps to build an understanding of and respect for people from other cultures and backgrounds. Faculty, staff, students, alumni, and community members are asked to consider giving.

-THE GOAL-

The goal is at least $1,000 of books. Three donors have pledged matching gifts for the first $250 purchased to maximize the impact of your giving!

-THE DATES-

Donations should be purchased by Nov. 21. Books will be delivered to schools in December or January.

-THE WAY TO GIVE-

Using a variety of well-informed sources, CUW students created an Amazon Wish List of books that represent a range of reading levels and prices.
