Call for Support
The Campus Alliance de La Raza (CALR), the Ronald E. McNair Scholars Program, and HOLA would like to introduce you to our annual Children's Holiday Book Drive. We seek your support in empowering the next generation of low-income youth through gifts of knowledge this holiday season. In the past years, we have donated to the Latin American Community Center, the Food Bank of Delaware, New Orleans, New York, and New Jersey; this year we wish to expand our efforts to Panama. In order to accomplish our goal of 2,000 books, we are collecting new and used books as well seeking financial support. For more information or questions contact Sharon Pozzo at
