Urban Librarians Unite has been working with a residential facility for Unaccompanied Minors and Children Separated from their Families at the Border for the last year. With the help of our generous supporters we have placed hundreds of new age appropriate books in both Spanish and English directly into the hands of kids who have experienced trauma and have very little to call their own.
We would like to be able to offer the kids other kinds of information and support. ULU would like to send them games, puzzles, and art supplies. Often these kids are bounced across the country as they are moved from one agency to another. We would like to get them some bags to carry books, crayons, activity books, and other comforts as they are bussed from place to place and acclimate to a new temporary “home”.
These materials will be purchased at a discount through First Book and other deep discount vendors to make every penny count and go directly to these kids in need of support.
You can help us reach our goal of $3500 by July 22nd by donating today!Donate at Fund Libraries
