Books4Buddies Holds Back to School Events

On Saturday, August 11, Books4Buddies held their annual back-to-school event at Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority’s Birmingham Terrace in order to bring free books and snacks to the residents. The “Book Ambassadors” – the students who coordinate the book program – and founder Laneta Goings were joined by members of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc; TPS Superintendent Romules Durant, EdD; Rev. Cedric Brock, pastor of Mt. Nebo Baptist Church and Dr. Amira Gohara, MD, immunopathology specialist and former president of the Medical College of Ohio (now the University of Toledo Medical College).

Books 4 Buddies is an organization that collects new and gently used books for disadvantaged children and young adults. Over the years, Books 4 Buddies have distributed more than 70,000 books all around northwest Ohio and the world.

In fact, the Book Ambassadors are also from all around the world. This year there are about two dozen ambassadors and three are from other countries – Muhamad Abdallah from Egypt (Sylvania Southview), Blaise Roudet-Milhau from France (Toledo School for the Arts) and Muhammad Tariq from Pakistan (Scott High School).
