Students at Brent Place Apartments Receive Desks!

"Purple! My favorite!" said one of the students who had just received a desk during the My Homework Space celebration. Through a community partnership with ACTion Alexandria, the City of Alexandria, Wright to Read, Bienvenidos, Community Lodgings and Samuel Tucker Elementary School, more than 15 students who live at Brent Place Apartments received their own desks to do their homework and read nightly. 

During the desk giveaway celebration, children with their parents recited a homework pledge to use their new homework spaces to complete their school work. To get the students started, Wright to Read donated a book to each child who received a desk. 

ACTion is grateful to be a part of this valuable project and wishes all of the students the best of luck with their homework spaces!!
