Groups Join With Company For School Library Makeover

Representatives of several organizations got together Nov. 10 — the day prior to Veterans Day — to take the wraps off the renovated library at Jack Kimbrough Elementary School in San Diego’s Grant Hill neighborhood, south of Balboa Park.

Minneapolis-based Target Corp. contributed to the project as part of its 2011 Target School Library Makeover program. Working with Target were representatives of the Heart of America Foundation, a Washington, D.C.-based organization that concentrates on literacy, and The Mission Continues, a service organization involving post-9/11 veterans.

The library received new furniture, carpet and shelves; technology upgrades; and 2,000 new books as part of its renovation. Students also received books to take home.

In addition, Target and Feeding America San Diego are providing a “Meals for Minds” school-based food pantry at Kimbrough Elementary.

“Knowing that hunger greatly affects a child’s ability to learn, the pantries will provide students and their families with a monthly distribution of staple foods and fresh produce to take home,” Target said in a statement.
