ABC 10 News - donates Books to all Lemon Grove Academy Elementary Students!

More than 400 students at Lemon Grove Academy Elementary got free books Tuesday, thanks to the generosity of people across San Diego.

Through the "If You Give a Child a Book" campaign, ABC 10News viewers and employees donated money to buy books for kids. The Scripps Howard Foundation matched many of the donations, and Scholastic also pitched in. Together, they raised $13,289, enough to buy 2,657 books.

Because of all that, each kid at the school could pick five free books to add to their library at home.
