Hands on Atlanta Day helps ASAP Africa’s Partners for Literacy Project
Twelve 10th graders from the Religious Education Center (REC) volunteered to help sort and box books for ASAP Africa as part of Hands on Atlanta Day on October 7th. The books had been donated by Fayette Co. residents as part of ASAP Africa’s Partner’s for Literacy Project with the Peachtree City, Fayette Daybreak and Fayetteville Rotary Clubs.
Over 5,000 books were sorted and boxed is less than four hours – more than half of those donated so far. After the hard work, each volunteer was given a ONE Campaign wristband and each one is now part of the campaign to make poverty history. Please read more about the ONE Campaign.
The book drive is continuing through October and ASAP looks forward to working together with Ismaili Center Community of REC and the Youth Engaged Services again in the future.
