Raising Money for Literatureby Jackie Cohen June 5, 2015
With the goal of adding 1,800 children to the PJ Library’s free books project, the PJ Library is asking for donations from the community. The national program sends free books of Jewish literature for children and young adults from Jewish and interfaith families.
As part of this push to raise the number of kids reached around San Diego County, all donations made by June 30 will be matched by donors Claire and David Ellman.
The PJ Library is a national program that was brought to San Diego as a part of the Shalom Baby program at the Lawrence Family JCC. According to their press release, Shalom Baby and the PJ Library strive to make San Diego “the most inclusive and welcoming Jewish community in the nation.”
Currently, PJ Library sends books and music once a month to children around San Diego, ages 6 months to 7 years old.
The goal of this fundraising effort is to add 1,800 waitlisted children to the San Diego program.
According to their flyers, a $20 donation covers one child’s subscription for a year.
PJ Library is accepting donations of all sizes on their website.
