March is a special month in schools across West Michigan and students at GRPS Southwest Community Campus got a special visit from Crash from the West Michigan Whitecaps. The Whitecaps Community Foundation donates thousands of books Grand Rapids Public Schools this month in an effort to encourage children to read during March is Reading Month and beyond.
This is the fourth year for the book donation. The book donation is a part of the Whitecaps Community Foundation’s Reading Program, which helps area school children enjoy Whitecaps baseball while promoting reading. If students reach their reading goals, they receive 2 tickets to a Whitecaps game.
