As part of its participation in Family Literacy Night held on Thursday, January 31st, 2013, Word of Life Lutheran School held a “penny war” and accepted book donations for Christian Friends of New Americans. The $512.00 that was collected was used to buy books from a Scholastic Book Fair that was also held on the 31st. Four large boxes were filled to the brim, all of these books to be donated to CFNA.
Word of Life was very excited to have collected these books and donated them to CFNA for its ministry among New Americans. The purpose, of course, was to help kids new to the USA to learn how to read and then to stay excited about reading.
