Corpus Christi, Texas — Saturday was a day full of free books for children in San Patricio County, thanks to a partnership between Gregory Portland ISD in Portland and several companies.
On Saturday morning, students and staff gathered at Gregory Portland Middle School to distribute over 10,000 books on this drive through book-a-palooza.
The event is held annually to promote early reading literacy by helping families build their home libraries before their children enter kindergarten.
The event ended at 2 pm today. If you missed it, check out next year’s book-a-palooza. Corporate sponsors included Cheniere, HEB, and the Kiwanis Club in Portland.
