Ford Motor Company Fund announced that it is donating 10,000 new books to DPS students, and 65 third-grade students from Earhart Elementary took part in the launch celebration and reading party.

Our Community Schools program arranged for the students to attend the event at the Ford Resource and Engagement Center (FREC).

Ford executives, including Ford Fund President Jim Vella, read to the children in small groups, and former professional boxer Oscar De La Hoya read from his new children’s book. The book donation is part of the Ford Driving Dreams initiative and is a collaboration with First Book.
