Fuerza Latinx's mission is to assist Latinx students on their path to higher education by providing resources and information that will help them get there. Fuerza Latinx is also dedicated to our youth and supporting our future leaders by actively engaging in the community.
Fuerza Latinx will distribute desired books to Latinx youth in Santa Cruz marginalized communities to further promote and support learning, wellness, and overall education. Read more about Fuerza Latinx here.
ABOUT OUR KEEP KIDS READING FUNDRAISER:
During this time of uncertainty and distance learning, books are out of reach for many local kids. We know that reading is not only an important “skill” to keep up, but that books are needed now, more than ever, to provide escape, inspiration, and fun. Bookshop Santa Cruz is coordinating with local school districts, nonprofits, and organizations to help fill that gap—but we need your help to do so!
Since we began our fundraising efforts at the beginning of the shutdown, you have put $34,000 worth of books in the hands of local young readers, which have been distributed by Santa Cruz County schools, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Cruz County, and the Walls to Bridges Book Project. (Read more about this special project that provides books to system-impacted children here.) THANK YOU!
By contributing to our Keep Kids Reading Fundraiser, you will not only be putting books into the hands of children but also be helping Bookshop Santa Cruz. The purchase of these books will help keep our booksellers employed, and help sustain the store during this challenging time. Thank you so much!
How many books would you like to gift?
