Colorado Gives Day
Many thanks to those that donated on Colorado Gives Day. SCOPE received more than $14,000 in donations which included $650 of matching funds received through the Colorado Gives Foundation. The majority of the funds received, approximately $10,000 will be used to pay for in-country costs for the processing and distribution of the 85,000 books due to arrive in Kenya in January. These books will be used to create 22 new school libraries in poverty stricken areas of southwest Kenya.
