El Paso, TX (KTSM) — Tu Libro, a local organization aimed at educating students, parents, communities and educators to defend Hispanic culture from the classroom to the courtroom is holding their annual Cesar Chavez fundraiser in an effort to provide thirty-one home libraries for thirty-one families in El Paso.
The goal of the program is to give these home libraries on March 31st, Cesar Chavez Day. Studies have proven that 90% of children who begin reading at a young age, read material they connect with and see a beautiful reflection of their culture on a regular basis - graduate on time, are active participants in their education and later in their communities.
If you would like to donate to Tu Libro, you can donate on their website and visit El Paso's local book stores and publishers for cultural selections.
