KDF DISTRIBUTES BOOKS TO CMS TITLE 1 SCHOOL
June 2019 - The Karen Dale Foundation, in partnership with the Queen City Rotary Club, provided support for the 3rd Graders at First Ward Creative Arts Academy, an Elementary School in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS). First Ward Creative Arts Academy is a Title 1 school, which means it has a large concentration of low-income students enrolled.
We distributed 220 books, which allowed all of the 3rd graders at the school to receive 2 books each. This donation was in support of the school's summer reading initiative.
During our presentation, the principal of the school expressed her gratitude and mentioned that if not for our donation, the students would not have received books that summer, due to budget cuts.
