Be a part of National AmeriCorps Week
in Grand Rapids

The primary focus of this project will be “The Box.”  The Box is an 8x8 structure with a Plexiglas wall that will be located outside a local bookseller.  This box will not only house an individual reading aloud 24 hours a day for 4 days (100 hours), but it will also act as the collection point for book donations.  The books will be donated to after-school programs and local organizations that serve children and families.  AmeriCorps members and community volunteers can sign up for one-hour shifts to read in The Box.  There will be additional activities such as a children’s story hour, visits from local celebrities, and bookshelf construction projects. 


Camp Fire USA has also invited AmeriCorps members and volunteers to come in and read to students in their after-school programs (which take place from 3:30 to 5:30, M-F) in the Grand Rapids Public Schools.
