ReadBoston, Storytime Crafts, First Book - April 16, 2020

Every Friday, amazing volunteer drivers line up along the street at the Red Cross in Boston to safely pick up food, hygiene kits and books to deliver to families in need. Today, volunteers will drop off for 550 families from the King, Haynes, Trotter, Burke HS, Frederick, Dever, and McCormack.

With social distancing our tasks are harder, and require extra steps...our work is more independent, yet we are all dependent on each other. We all have the same reach families affected by the COVID crisis, give children access to reading, and show the BPS community we care, people care. Storytime Crafts amazing partners make this possible: ReadBoston, Martin Luther King K-8 School, Dorchester, Boston Public Schools, First Book and Hope & Comfort.
