East Beach Buddies Book Drive

East Beach Buddies (EBB) is a group of about 60 East Beach neighbors who volunteer at Ocean View Elementary School. There are two Teams – Reading (volunteers Wednesday 10:30 – 11:30) and Math (volunteers Tuesday 10:00 – 11:30). The Reading Team works with 1st and 2nd graders who need a caring adult to provide one on one reading time. The Math Team works with students from all grade levels providing support with math skills. The programs run from October until April.

As a result of COVID, we were not able to finish last school year or start this one with the children in the school. Different times call for different ideas! Thus, our Teams have decided to undertake a book give away for ALL of the students at Ocean View Elementary. This will be set up in front of the school and the families can drive by and pick up books. We are putting bins in about 10 Ocean View and East Beach locations and asking the community to help us with this book drive. We are asking for new books appropriate for children K – 5th grade.

The students, families, and faculty of Ocean View Elementary appreciate any and all help. Thank you.

Locations and boxes include COVA (at Shore Drive and Pretty Lake Ave), The Attic and Cross Fit in the shopping center on Shore Drive), and Crystal Palate (on Pretty Lake Ave).
