EMS & Project Cicero Will Partner to Bring Books to Students
The Elisabeth Morrow School (EMS) in Englewood, New Jersey will once again partner with Project Cicero New Jersey and will host the annual book drive that will benefit public school students from under-resourced schools in New Jersey. Approximately 200 teachers from various districts will attend the book drive that will be held at The Elisabeth Morrow School Saturday, March 8, 2014 at 11:00AM. Over 200 teachers will be able to select books to take back to their classrooms for their students. Project Cicero accepts new and gently used hardcover and paperback books for children (pre-K through grade 12) and young adults. Project Cicero does not accept textbooks, adult books, library discards or out of date non-fiction/reference books. All teachers who would like to benefit from the drive must pre-register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Project Cicero Northern New Jersey was started in 2013 by two Bergen County moms Teddi Hunter (Englewood) and Jennifer Backer (Fort Lee), who thought to duplicate the great work that was being done by Project Cicero in NYC.
Project Cicero NYC has existed for over ten years, taking new and gently used books from donors at public schools and independent schools and redistributes them to needy public schools through an annual book drive. To date, Project Cicero has placed over 2 Million books into 10,500 classrooms and school libraries reaching 450,000 children in under-resourced schools in NYC. The second annual outreach of Project Cicero in Northern New Jersey, will benefit schools throughout the state.
