Book Donations - for MetroSquash library
Please choose customer pickup for the shipping option. MetroSquash will be picking up books directly from Monarch.
We are partnering with MetroSquash (501c3), a local Chicago based non-profit that serves low-income and high-risk youth in the Woodlawn and Evanston areas. They are most known for the athletic and academic services offered, but due to the circumstances around COVID-19, they have had to move from in-person to remote services.
One of the features they have is a lending library, which has been depleted. Monarch is donating books to their library. Every $2 donated here means at least 2 more books will be placed in the library. Donations of any amount are welcome!
MetroSquash highlights include:
-15 years of serving Chicagoland youth who desire and deserve more
-Serving 400+ 5th graders-post-secondary completion - Woodlawn & Evanston
-98% college enrollment rate – 2x the Chicago Public Schools’ rate
-88% college persistence rate – 5x the Chicago Public Schools’ rate
-85% of alumni have secured full-time employment
