Alpine Chamber of Commerce organized a Ride for Reading delivery and we were happy to be a part of this free book delivery to the kids at Alpine Elementary School. In January, we organized deliveries in Terlingua and Fort Davis, allowing every elementary school child in those communities to take home two books of their own choosing...as their very own.
Volunteer riders (escorted by city
police) rode their bikes to the elementary school where the kids were
waiting for us, chanting "We love books, We love books!" Then, grade by
grade, the kids assembled in the school cafeteria, took the Ride for
Reading oath, and chose their books.
Today, we're helping with another delivery in Dell City, near Guadalupe Mountains National Park!
