Holiday book drive

From Nov. 9 to Dec. 14, a book drive will be collecting gently used books to be donated to the Maryland Book Bank. All sorts of books are welcome—children's or otherwise! Collection boxes are at the JHU Rec Center front desk. Be sure to read some of the facts and quotes on the boxes about education equity and justice.

The event is co-sponsored by Teach For America and Hermandad de Sigma Iota Alpha, Incorporada.

Teach For America is a nonprofit leadership organization that aims to promote education equity in our country.
