NA for Change Book Drive

NA For Change is a coalition of North Allegheny students, alumni, parents, educators, and community members working to place the issues of diversity, inclusion, and antiracism at the forefront of the community’s attention while advocating for the implementation of solutions to positively benefit the community and its students. We are holding a book drive to ensure that young readers in the Pittsburgh area have access to books that reflect their own identity and prepare them for life in a diverse world. The drive will run from April 10th to May 8th, and all books will be donated to Reading Ready Pittsburgh.

Please indicate in the "Order Comments" section that you would like to donate this purchase to NA for Change.  Riverstone Books will take care of the rest!
