Here’s how we celebrated Giving Tuesday

November 27, 2012

Over 1000 books and some canned food for Sense Charter School!

OBAT’s desire to create a difference in the local Indianapolis community led it to partner with Second Helpings and Sense Charter School.

For Giving Tuesday, we aspired to collect enough books to help Sense Charter School start a library for the kids studying there. Most of the kids at the school come from impoverished backgrounds and  encouraging reading is not on the families’ priorities list as there are more pressing issues at hand. Sense Charter School currently has a tiny reading room with only a few books. With the help of over a 1000 books donated by OBAT, they will be able to start a library for the students. We haven’t stopped here and are still actively collecting books for them. So feel free to donate some. Reach us at: contact@obathelpers.org if you have some extra books lying around.

Our deepest thanks to Half Price Books for their boxes of donations that helped us achieve our goal of starting a library at Sense Charter School.
