Love to Read Initiative


BCDI Hosted it’s Annual “Love To Read” Literacy Initiative on Saturday August 6, 2011 at the African World Festival Grounds. We were able to distribute nearly 3,500 books collected from local organizations and distributed to participants through the hands of committed volunteers. We believe that this year’s event was a huge success. This was our first year hosting at AWF, and we look forward to 2012!
