“Looking for some extra help for your child’s school work? We are Ninth Grade Girl Scouts looking to complete our Silver Award and would love to help. Our goal is to help kids with schoolwork in grade levels 2-6, and the best part is… it’s FREE! We are all very qualified (National Junior Honor Society).
You can contact us with this email → firstname.lastname@example.org to request a timeslot. (Please note what dates and times are right for you)
Additionally, we would love to host a book club. Your child would select their own book and we would discuss it together virtually. Grades 3-6 are welcomed and you should contact us at
(email@example.com) to request a time slot for a Google Hangout meeting date.
Looking to donate your children’s books? Part of our project is book donation to the Bridge of Books Foundation. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for us to come pick up the books.
Books are needed more than ever in the face of virtual education.
Book Requirements from Bridge of Books Foundation:
Book Drop off locations are located at Cups and Cakes in Rumson, and The Bottle Shop in Spring Lake until the end of the year."
