Rolling with Books

Trey Chapman is passionate about giving people the same opportunities he was afforded growing up. Trey and his educator, Lowana Wade, advanced literacy in the Northeast Guilford County of North Carolina, an economically challenged, underserved community. Rolling with Books is a service-learning program, promoting reading and literacy for Kindergarten through 5th grade students at an afterschool program located less than a mile from their school. Their team of high school students work to gather, distribute and read books to children while building relationships and sharing the joy and gift of reading. Volunteers help kids select a reading level appropriate book, work on reading comprehension and select a free take-home book after each session. To date, they have raised more than $630 dollars to purchase books and have gathered over 1,000 book donations.
