By Jaine Treadwell Jensen Garrett, a Pike Liberal Art School senior, is once again organizing a book drive for elementary students in local schools. Her purpose in organizing the book drive is that “a book is a gift that you can open again and again.”“I believe that reading is incredibly important, not only to a child’s education but also for their imagination, Jensen said. “This is the third year for the book drive. Last year, about 300 books were donated. The books were given to children to take home for their own and teachers were provided new books for their classrooms. The students and teachers were excited to receive the books. Both years have been successful so, I’m organizing another book drive and hoping it will be even more successful.”This year, Jensen has titled her book drive, “Turning Pages.”“I think books have the power to leave a big impact on the lives of children,” she said. “I want to encourage them to read books, to turn pages and open doors.” You Might Like Book Nook to reopen By The Penny Hoarder Print Article PLAS senior Garrett hosting book drive for local students The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
