of the country’s largest banks, a major retailer, and a non-profit organization
teamed up to give Greenlawn Elementary School a library makeover.
Capital One, Target, and the Heart
of America Foundation have partnered to award a $65,000 READesign grant to
Greenlawn Elementary School to revitalize the school’s library.
READesign® Library Makeover revitalizes elementary school libraries that engage
children in learning, creating a love of reading. Each themed READesign®
Library Makeover includes 1,000-2,000 new, high-quality library books, new
furniture, and vibrant paint, murals or original paintings by a nationally
READesign® Library Makeover program engages volunteers, especially local youth,
as well as corporate team members and other members of the community, in
service and community involvement through library beautification and
improvement activities, book distributions, and one-on-one reading activities
with children. The project provides tangible results in the form of a
revitalized library, as well as the intangible results of engaging people in
caring, compassionate community service to children in need.
