Rowayton School PTA is partnering with Filling In The Blanks (“FITB”) for a Book Drive – Everyone loves a good book!
Our goal is to deliver 500 books to Filling In The Blanks by June.
These books will be part of a 2019 Holiday Backpack filled with
gifts for the children they feed throughout the year.
Please consider purchasing a NEW book for these very deserving kids.
If we accomplish our goal, all Rowayton students will have a special dance party to celebrate!
There are two ways to donate a NEW book:
· Visit www.fillingintheblanks.org and click the AMAZON button
· Bring new children’s books to school and drop them off in the pink box located in the main office.
PreK/K: Let's Go for a Drive by Mo Willems
1-2 grade: Any early reader level 2-3 book
3-4 grade: Any of the "Who Was/Is" series

HS: We Should Hang Out Sometime by Josh Sundquist
If you have gently used, good condition books at home you would like to donate they can use those too! FITB will donate the books to school libraries of the 27 schools they service (pre-k through high school). You can also drop them off in the pink box located in the main office.
Filling in the Blanks ("FITB"), is a non-profit organization founded in 2013, that fights childhood hunger by providing children in need with meals on the weekends. Based in Norwalk CT, FITB delivers weekend meals to over 1,500 children at 27 schools and 10 summer camps in Fairfield and Westchester Counties. For many of these children their last good meal is school provided lunch on Friday and their next meal might not be until breakfast at school on Monday. FITB strives to end childhood hunger by providing a food secure environment over the weekends.
Thank you for your support!
