Ride for Reading Book Drive Print

Achen-Gardner Construction is working with other businesses to collect books for kids who need them.


WHAT: Collecting new and gently-used books for primary-school children

WHEN: April 22 to May 6, 2013

WHERE: 550 S. 79th Street, Chandler AZ 85226

Achen-Gardner Construction is collecting books over a two week period as a part of the national Ride for Reading Book Drive. The book drive's mission is to promote literacy and healthy living through the distribution of books via bicycle to children from low-income neighborhoods. The books collected by Achen-Gardner Construction will be distributed to a primary school in the Mesa School District by participants on bicycles or in bulk delivery. This is a worthwhile endeavor that targets low-income families and schools that have a dire need for books. It also gives anyone who decides to ride a chance for some exercise and a chance to see the happiness brought to these children through books. So please dig those books out of storage and donate them for a good cause!
