“On behalf of the more than 42,000 students we serve, we would like to thank you and the Houston Bar Association community for hosting a book drive to benefit our program. The 337 books you collected will ensure that even more at-risk students in Houston have access to age-appropriate books within their homes. We are so very grateful for your meaningful support!”
