Councilor O’Quinn will be helping both Oliver and Barrett Elementary School students and teachers kick off the new school year with a book donation totaling around $3,000.

I was glad to assist in get Paige’s donation to two deserving elementary schools in District 5. These books are truly wonderful and will enrich the lives of the children at these schools. Many are beautiful picture books encompassing a diverse array of topics from civil rights to self worth, family, and community to arts and creativity.”
