Mortar Board to host Reading is Leading Book Drive

Submitted by Cadence Bailee Ciesielski

Mortar Board's XIX chapter at K-State, a registered departmental student organization, is hosting a book drive to benefit Ellis Middle School and High School, USD 388, as a part of Mortar Board's national initiative to promote literacy.

Participate in our events during the week of March 21-25 to help us collect books and funds to donate to USD 388:

  • March 21-23 donate books: Stop by the K-State Student Union to donate new or gently used books for grades 7-12.
  • March 22 eat at Panda Express: Grab lunch at Panda Express in the Union and mention Mortar Board to donate a percentage to the schools.
  • March 21-25: Visit our social media pages @ksumortarboard to learn how you can donate money that will allow the schools to purchase new resources.
