Please Give to the Stories for Students from Students Program 

Each $5 donation buys a child a book they choose at a school-wide book fair. For every $10 that you donate, you buy books for two children! With that being said, the more money you donate, the more books will be given to children to further their reading skills and education! 

Each child gets to pick out a book of their very own at our annual book fair with the help of their teachers and Ohio State students like you.
