Los Alamos Middle School has chosen to participate in Read to Feed‚ a reading incentive program designed by Heifer International, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending world hunger and poverty while caring for the Earth.
Read to Feed allows children to help find solutions to global problems like hunger and poverty.
LAMS students will record each of the books they read on the back of a sheet, through Dec. 14. Students will ask for pledges for each book they read.
A “buck a book,” from their family and friends is recommended, but any amount will be accepted, no matter how small. Cash or checks will be accepted.
Checks should be made out to LAMS with “Read to Feed” on the memo line. School district policy prohibits canvassing: going door-to-door, to collect pledges.
The Read to Feed Committee (a group of seventh graders organizing the fundraiser) will decide what kinds of animals to buy through Heifer International.
Heifer then decides where the need is greatest and provides families and communities with the animals they’ve purchased through the money raised.
