With over 150 children from 16 communities across the U.S. enrolled in One Book At A Time, we’re thrilled to be adding even more children from a new site – The Museum School in Yonkers, N.Y. Five new OBAAT elementary school kids will receive their first book from their assigned book “buddy” this fall. OBAAT’s mission is to provide a personal connection between a donor family with enough to share and a book-loving child in need. OBAAT donors buy and send one new book every month to the child they are matched with along with a letter, providing “their” child with that wonderful feeling of book ownership. Seventy-nine percent of students at The Museum School qualify for free or reduced lunch through the National Free Lunch Program. With household budgets stretched to provide food and basic necessities, buying books is usually out of the question.
