Ms. Stepp from Hope Mills NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Give Them What They Want! - Teens Read Too!

My students need new and exciting fiction title to feed their voracious appetite for books!

  • $545 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our students are rabid readers, pouring through our limited selection with incredible speed. Requests are made daily for new fiction titles and currently we rely solely on donations to provide them.

Our high school is located in North Carolina and is largely populated by the children of our military stationed here and overseas.

We are a high need school, serving a low income population. With the North Carolina school budget being cut in every department, we no longer have enough funding for reading materials and look to you, dear donor, to aid in the education of all these bright young men and women.

My Project

This selection of reading materials covers a wide range of topics, appealing to a large spectrum of our students. They have been carefully selected for recommended reading. Not only are these books award winning and listed on multiple national organizations "best of" lists, but they are also titles that our students have shown a particular interest in reading. For example, the novel 'The Fault in Our Stars' is soon to be a feature film, so the popularity and demand for these books are on the rise. Providing out students the newest, most popular materials ensures the success of the library. We like to keep them coming back for more!

Books are vital to young adults, offering thoughtful interpretations of the world and humanity.

They are empowering and mind expanding, helping not only with our understanding of our daily lives but with the vocabulary and context in which we assess ourselves. Our students are eager to read and we ask you to help us provide them with a quality alternative to television, video games, and roaming the streets. Let's give them something to think about. Let's give them the gift of reading!
