Students from the Edinburg CISD will have plenty of new books to read in the following weeks.
The national non-profit organization known as the Molina Foundation donated 44,000 new books to the district. The books have a total value of $328,000. The Molina Foundation donated children’s storybooks, as well as activity, work and study books. One librarian says students will benefit greatly from this donation.
Maria Elida Martinez – Librarian, “We are in an area here in the valley where a lot of kids don’t have books at home, and this is a good way to get these books into their hands and make an impact for them. We are very grateful and thankful for the Molina grant.”
Since 2004, the Molina Foundation has donated over four million books to schools across the nation.
