Books to Boost

This July we had the privilege of continuing our partnership with the Nantucket Community School’s Summer Boost Program.  This year we built up 50 bags of books, filled with preschool reading materials including some of our favorite titles.  The bags included bilingual books, workbooks to practice writing letters, numbers and shapes as well as flashcards and crayons.  These bags were delivered to the students enrolled on the Summer Boost Program through the Community School of Nantucket.  This program is designed for students who need a boost before entering school for the first time as a kindergartner.  The Harvey Foundation was able to provide these books for students to start building their libraries at home in helping to foster a love of reading at an early age. Stay tuned for more partnerships with the Community School in the future.
