Adopt-a-Book Event, Fall 2017


Last Saturday morning, Core presented its very first Adopt-a-Book event, sponsored by Word & Way, the Core student association. Scholars old and new gathered in CAS 119 to munch on bagels and muffins, sip on juice and coffee, and peruse a massive selection of books awaiting a forever home. And, in keeping with the spirit of generosity we hope to cultivate here in Core, we also collected donations for the benefit of the Katy ISD Education Foundation, which pledges to come to the aid of families and staff of the Katy Independent School District impacted by Hurricane Harvey. In addition to the number of books we received to be given away and sold for fundraising, we raised $220 total in Venmo and cash donations.

As thanks, here are the names of some of our donors.

The following donated books to be given-away/sold for the fundraising:

  • Core Curriculum
  • Charles Coe
  • Sarah Smith
  • Abby Hafer
  • Rose Grenier
  • Zachary Bos

Cash donations totaled to $149, with contributions including those by the following:

  • Jonathan Han
  • Jessica Oshanani (@jess_oshanani)

  • Kylie McCuiston
  • not to mention our many anonymous contributors!

And finally, we raised $70 in Venmo donations, thanks to the charity of the following:

  • Janet Zhou
  • Maaha Rafique
  • Allie Cole
  • Jonathan Han
  • Chance Pompay

As you can see, the first Adopt-a-Book was a roaring success! And due to popular demand, we hope to organize more events of this kind in the future.
