Service Project: Junaluska Elementary School Book Drive

2019 NOAC volunteers at Junaluska Elementary School

NOAC participants love to serve. Past NOAC efforts have helped build the libraries of Junaluska Elementary School classrooms, providing hundreds of wonderful books. This year, when NOAC will be held virtually, we will help Ira Hyde, Junaluska Elementary School librarian, create a more culturally diverse library for the low-income community where he serves children in grades K-5.

Libby Kinsey and Ira Hyde have created a list of rich diverse books for the Junaluska Elementary School library. These are diverse books of all genres that focus on characters of color, stories that show how much we all have in common as well as the interesting ways we are unique. 

NOAC participants and churches are invited to donate FUNDS toward the purchasing of books on Ira’s list. Hope Church of the Brethren in Freeport, Michigan, donated $500 to get the ball rolling.  

Individual and church donations of any size will go far in furthering the work of God’s people, revealing the beauty to be found in God’s rich, diverse global community.
