Over 30 cyclists made the nearly five-mile round trip, delivering books on bicycles from the Commodore Yacht Club to Gower Elementary School. Throngs of screaming students awaited the riders as they rolled up the driveway with books literally in tow.
Mostly Tomatos again sponsored and partnered with the United Way of Greater Atlanta in conjunction with the Early Literacy Celebration by donating 1,500 Pre-K books, which put two-three brand new books in the hands of 450 children to increase their learning at home. Mostly Tomatos also provided 20-25 new books to the 20 Pre-K classes to help them increase enrichment in their classrooms.
Mostly Tomatos took part in Ride for Reading's National Week May 9 in Nashville, participating in a bicycle delivery of books to Fall Hamilton School. National Week is Ride for Reading's annual initiative where cities from across the country host their own delivery to benefit their local community.
One minute the cart was up. The next minute, the cart was down. We wanted to make a big splash in arriving at Book'em's offices to donate a couple of carts worth of books to the organization which accepts and donates books to Metro area schools. This was not the splash we had in mind.
