Cream Family School, 1875 Mulford Street Camden, NJ 08104. Bess the Book Bus is a mobile literacy outreach vehicle dedicated to narrowing the academic achievement gap. Dozens of free books will be distributed to residents on a "first come, first-served" basis.
"The Bus instills a love of reading in asset-limited communities by supplying high-quality books to children, caregivers, and educators and making the joy of book ownership a reality. Children will receive a book to bring home to begin their own home libraries. In addition, there will be fun activities, healthy snacks, entertainment, and more for the attending 250 students," said Anya Nawrocky, Amerigroup New Jersey
