|Month||Name of Winner||Organization||How will the books be used?|
|January 2021||Hayley B.||ParentChild+||El Centro’s ParentChild+ South King County program has had to go virtual since the beginning of the pandemic. All the families have been greatly involved despite having to continue their visits via videocalls, and we look forward to having 24 children graduate from our program by the end of June. Despite the likelihood that we will be hosting a virtual graduation, graduating children will still receive a diploma and backpack, which we can now fill with a couple of books each. As the children wait to start their next educational journey—we can ensure they have fun reading material to keep them engaged! Thank you Books by the Bushel!!|
|February 2021||C. Davis||The Family Partnership||Thank you so much. This makes my week. We plan on providing books to the children enrolled in our program. Our goal is to make sure that all of our children have their own personal library at thier home. We work with families that are underprivileged and providing them with books will be a valuable resource for their children.|
|March 2021||Krista L.||H A Snyder Elementary||I plan to add some of the books to my browsing library in our school library as well as sharing some with our newer teachers, in order to help them build their classroom libraries.|
|April 2021||Denise S.||Ascension St. Mary's Foundation||The books will be used for our ER Books program, which provides books to children, birth through age 17 with a book to take home when they visit one of our emergency rooms or one of our physician offices. These books help promote literacy, while easing the anxiety children feel during one of these visits.|
|May 2021||Jennifer K.||CMCA Bridge Program||The books will be used for the families in our program to promote literacy and connections between parents and children. We serve families in poverty|
|June 2021||Emily B||Early Childhood Home-Base Program||ChildCareGroup has a bi-lingual, English/Spanish, Home-Based Program for prenatal through age 5 where we teach the parent to become the child's first teacher. We give books to the family at least monthly and also have a lending library in-house for books that are loaned to the families when necessary. At this time we will add the set to our lending library. They will be used in our monthly socializations to assist with the topic being presented as well as where the books are available and possibly be able to order additional one's for raffle prizes to the families that attend. ChildCareGroup is excited to accept the set of books and please know that they will be a great added resource to the Home-Based library.|
|July 2021||Abby G.||Village Elementary||I will be using the books to set up a library in my 4th-grade classroom. I am moving from lower elementary to upper elementary, so I am in need of "older" books for my students. I cannot wait to share the new books with my class.|
|August 2021||Peyton B.||Iredell County Partnership For Young Children||These books will be used in our program called Loads of Literacy. This program serves 8 local laundromats in Iredell County with a laundry basket of gently used/donated books. Each month my job is to go out and refresh the books and leave new information about our Partnership. When families come into the laundromats we wanted to provide children with a space, so as they wait on their families they are not glued to the phone, instead they have the option to read books. The neat things is, they are welcome to take home a book as well! This allows children who might not have access to developmentally age-appropriate books to create their own library at home.|
|September 2021||Natalie J.||Brevard Early Head Start||I will use the books as incentives and door prizes for parent meetings.|
