KARW Supports September's Literacy Month
Kingwood Area Republican Women support two projects that foster literacy within our community. The Mamie Eisenhower Library Project (MELP) encourages the donation of patriotic/values books to the Kingwood library. This project was established in 1961 to foster Republican philosophy and ideas through the donation of subject related books and videos to libraries, schools and other institutions. In addition, we support the Barbara Bush Literacy Library Project (BBLLP). This project was founded by our former first lady on March 6, 1989. Books are donated to the local library, school or shelter in support of BBLLP. We presented the books to Kingwood Library at our September meeting! We appreciate the hardwork of Devon Alexander, our Literacy Chair and Board Member.
