Let’s give back!
Children’s Book Drive Collection
CMDS is proud to participate in a holiday book drive to collect books for at-risk and underprivileged children in NJ. We have partnered with Monmouth County charity Bridge of Books Foundation (www.bridgeofbooksfoundation.org) to collect and distribute books to New Jersey children.
Understanding the Need
In middle-income neighborhoods, every child owns an average of 13 books.
In lower-income neighborhoods, this ratio is as low as ONE book per every 300 children.
Studies show that the earlier children are introduced to books and reading, the stronger their literacy skills develop – giving them lifelong advantages and opportunities.
Join CMDS and Bridge of Books in our book donation efforts and help ensure every child in New Jersey has a book to call their own.
