Shelter In Books
April 6, 2020
Cinco Puntos Press is launching “Shelter In Books,” a classroom sponsorship program. We will be taking book set requests from teachers and matching them with donors looking to help educators and students.
We are offering books for these donations at a discount of 50%. You can find open requests for sponsorships at: cincopuntos.com/shelter-in-books. Teachers who’d like to enter their requests can do so here: https://forms.gle/3rNLFYPhY3uhETdX9.
The swift rise of COVID-19 cases, and the resulting school shutdowns and shelter-in-place orders, have left teachers in the difficult position of having to continue their lessons without any of the materials from their physical classrooms. Those who sponsor a class book set can help teachers provide an educational resource that will give students a rest from extended screen time. They can help students without internet access, unable to do online work at all. They can provide a world children can engage in during these tense times.
This program was inspired by kind emails we’ve recently received from people offering donations to help Cinco Puntos during this turbulent period. We have likewise received requests for books from teachers with very limited budgets, teachers who would spend from their own money to provide materials for their students. So, we would like to match donors with these teachers.
Reading is an essential skill and we hate the thought of students losing their, and their teachers’, hard-earned progress from lack of access to books. Our hope is that “Shelter In Books” can help them keep up their great work, and foster their love of reading.
