Christian & Small participated in the Better Basics Book Drive and collected 134 books as part of Birmingham Reads’ Book Drive Challenge. The book drive was coordinated by Brad Hightower. At the end of the city-wide book drive, nearly 14,000 books were collected and distributed to school children.

That is why it is so important to get adequate reading materials in the hands and homes of struggling readers so we can stop the crippling cycle of illiteracy and poverty in our state.
