Hampton Prep Online Book Drive
Hampton Preparatory is a public charter school in Southwest Dallas. We have over 800 scholars in K-12 who are committed to going to college. Many will be the first in their family to do so. However, to achieve their goal, they are going to need great reading and writing skills. To acquire those skills our scholars need access to quality books. Since 71% of our students are on free or reduced lunch, many will be dependent on the Hampton Library for their reading material. However, right now the Hampton Library is woefully under-stocked. We need to get about 700 books to properly stock the library and give our scholars the tools they need to succeed.
You can help our scholars in three easy ways:
1) Easy: Donate a new or gently used book from our list of books needed. The address to mail them to is on the book list page.
2) Easier: Give a cash donation. $18 will buy one shelf-ready hardback book. $180 will buy an entire class a book. $1,800 will buy an entire shelf. Every little bit will help.
3) Easiest: Spread the word. Post a link to us on your Facebook or LinkedIn page. Have your book club, office, or company sponsor a class or shelf.
With your help we can meet our goal of 700 books!
