Edison Elementary School Book Drive:
In honor of Black History Month and the African American Read-In initiative, The Greater Tampa Jack and Jill Associates Group held their Day of Service Community Service Project in partnership with three local Inns of Court: Bruce R. Jacob-Chris W. Altenbernd Criminal Appellate American Inn of Court, The C. H. Ferguson M. E. White American Inn of Court, and The Stann Givens Family Law American Inn of Court. This turned into a major collaborative effort that benefited Edison Elementary School students and families.
The three Inns combined far exceeded our goal of 100 books and donated a whopping 584 books to Edison Elementary! And, combined with the efforts of The Greater Tampa Jack and Jill Association, we collected close to 700(!!!) books. That means we were able to donate two books for each student and gift a full set of books for the school's media center.
