Help us make sure every child at Dunbar Elementary has a book to read.
Dunbar Elementary school is a Title 1 school (which means many of its students live below the poverty line) located less than three miles from the Hyde Park campus of Hyde Park United Methodist. The school serves students in Kindergarten – Grade 5. 253 of the approximately 275 students qualify for free or reduced lunch.
You can make a difference in the lives of these students by bringing a new children’s book to donate when you come to worship on Jan. 20 or 27.
Many students at Dunbar Elementary have only a few books at home, and it is our goal to collect 600 books. View our suggested book list here.
Volunteer to help collect books at both of our campuses. Sign up for the time(s) and date(s) that work for you.
Jan. 18, 2019 Update: We are half-way to our goal of 600 books! Books for grades 3-5 are especially needed. Thank you to those who have donated books and volunteered to collect them!
