Authors of Color Book Drive

What: Carvd N Stone Inc. is accepting donations of gently used/new books written by authors of color. We are looking to a reach a goal of 1,000 books to donate to Milwaukee Public Schools students. As a media company that truly cares, it’s our duty to use our platform to make a positive impact. Our MPS students need to be exposed to authors and characters that look like, talk like and have been through similar issues like them. Books are very educational and affect the way we understand and see the world around us. Authors of color will show our students that they can accomplish anything.

When: March 15-June 1

Location: Milwaukee Police Department District 7, 3626 W. Fond Du Lac Ave. and Greater Milwaukee Foundation, 101 W Pleasant St.
