Books and supplies needed in the Bronx

Posted by Christie Stanger on Friday, September 1, 2017 at 3:18 PM



Hurricane Harvey has devastated lives and affected many people. 

Grace Li is set to begin teaching at Bronx Compass High School next week. She had planned to ship her own personal books from her hometown. However, her hometown is Houston and the books, if not ruined, are currently inaccessible.

I am so impressed by Grace and her desire to provide much needed books to the kids in her school, and even more impressed by her willingness to use her personal library to facilitate getting books into their hands. I plan to send books her way, and I hope you will too!

And, as always, schools need supplies. Teachers often dip into their own pockets to make sure their students have the basics and beyond.

If you have any YA books you are willing to part with and/or if you would like to donate school supplies, please get in touch with Grace at gli@bronxcompass.org or through twitter @gracedli. Or, if you’d prefer to simply send them, they can be mailed to Grace’s attention at:

Bronx Compass High School, 1980 Lafayette Ave, Bronx, NY 10473

Thanks so much for any assistance you are able to give Grace and her students!
