CHEER to donate books to local students
Special to The Herald
CHEER, first established in Yazoo City, has distributed millions of books across the world and is now poised to build mini family libraries in 200 Yazoo City High School students’ homes.
The first 1000 books will be distributed to students on March 6 from 2-2:30 p.m. at the High School Library. The second 1,000 books will be distributed to parents in April.
Students and parents will be able to enjoys $250,000 worth of literature.
For the convenience of carrying the books, students and parents will receive a burlap tote bag donated by American Eagle.
This Parent Involvement Activity is made possible, in part, by an $1 million 21st Century grant from the Mississippi Department of Education.
