Literature for Glen Ellyn Families

Through SCARCE's book rescue program and Tools for Schools, we handpicked 700+ books last year, along with school supplies, puzzles, educational posters, literacy curriculum and more!Nearly all of the books ultimately end up in the homes of the low-income children we serve. Because of SCARCE, we are able to put literature into the daily lives of GECRC families.
