"Reach Out and Read" at Your College

The Texas Tech Physician Assistant class of 2014 at Midland College is hosting a book drive, and has partnered with the organization Reach Out and Read to make an impact in the Midland community.

They will be collecting books through October 12th, and collection boxes can be found near the Student Life office, in the Dorothy & Clarence Scharbauer, Jr. Student Center, and in the lobby of the Murray L. Fasken Learning Resource Center (library), both on the MC Main Campus.

They are specifically needing books for age range of 5 months to 6 years. All donated books will go towards combating illiteracy right here in Midland. A local Midland medical clinic will be recieving the books. Staff at this facility understand the goals of Reach Out and Read and are committed to fulfililng the parameters set forth by the organization.

More information about the program, and its mission is available at the Reach Out and Read website .
