John Hay Book Drive

Join the John Hay PTA in supporting students who are not able to access printed books during the closure of Seattle Public Schools. We are fundraising to provide books for about 100 students at John Hay, as well as Viewlands Elementary School, the school John Hay is partnering with to sponsor their families. At Viewlands ES the poverty rate is 35% and their families are feeling the impact of school closure heavily.

With your donation, John Hay's teachers will shop for books for the students and will deliver them to the families in need. Giving these families access to books will help keep students reading and minimize the opportuity gap at this critical time when school and public libraries are closed.

Note that May 4-8 is Teacher Apreciation Week for Seattle Public Schools. Consider donating in honor of a teacher who has had a special impact on your or your childrens' lives. (List the teacher's names in the Order comments section when checking out.)

Thank you for supporting this great cause!
Raised to-date: Almost $1500!
