Lecturer Little Lands Literary Lift

Posted 4-18-2017 by Marti Harvey

Lecturer Jennifer Little, PREL/ADVT, received the first ever Kickass Single Moms grant for $1,000 for her Little Hands Book Bank project.

Founded in 2012, the Little Hands Book Bank collects new and gently-used children’s books in the North Texas community. Books are cleaned and sorted into starter libraries, which are given to low-income children through local partner organizations that emphasize education, reading-readiness and family literacy.

The Kickass Single Mom Grant awards $1,000 each month to support promising projects already underway that could use a financial boost.
