A Forsyth County teen recently helped stock the shelves of Brandywine Elementary School’s media center, his organization donating 2,000 books to the school.
Remington Youngblood, a senior at Lambert High School and founder of Change4Georgia, a student-led nonprofit, presented the books to the school Dec. 12, 2016, nearly doubling its collection.
“We do a lot to help out around our community,” Youngblood said. “We help military veterans, their families, and we have five main initiatives: literacy, homelessness, caring for kids, environment and senior citizens. The one we’re focusing on today is our literacy initiative, and [in total], we’ve collected over 317,000 books.”
