Live with Purpose- March Bookmarks

Join JVC by making Bookmarks for local students this month! Fun bookmarks will be donated with books to encourage literacy in our community.

Who are we helping? Bookmarks will be donated to students at nine Baltimore elementary schools via our Bookworms program. Volunteers bring books into the schools and read to students, and now they will also have hand-decorated bookmarks to go with them that students get to keep forever. Students in the past have loved our homemade bookmarks as it truly makes reading fun!

Supplies:
