First U's 3rd Annual Holiday Book Drive was a resounding success, thanks to abundant donations from members and friends of our congregation, and to the work of our fantastic book drive coordinator, Bijan Makarechi. The Andrew Jackson Elementary school library and classrooms will receive a total of 120 books donated by First U --
including three full class sets of 25 books each, 15 individual books requested by school staff, and 30 extra books too add to the school's growing library collection. Members of the Social Justice Ministry Team (SJMT) collected, sorted, and delivered the books to Andrew Jackson this week to the delight of grateful teachers, staff, and students. A big thank you from all of us on the SJMT for helping to promote literacy in our city!
