Foundation donates to Books and Beyond Program through the Assistance League of Bellingham

The purpose of this program is to coordinate with local school districts as well as other non-profits for the promotion of literacy programs.The program is divided into three segments: some members tutor children in the classroom,another works with the distribution of used children's books to Whatcom County disadvantaged families in migrant worker camps,local food banks and school literacy festivals. The third purchase new books for classrooms or school libraries determined by need and the Niche report.

Emily was passionate about promoting education for disadvantaged children.She had hoped to teach in the migrant camps.She was able to teach in Nepal, Mexico and the US. I think that Emily would be really happy about this program supporting reading and a love for books for the children of Whatcom County.
