BBYO Members Are Changing the Game… One Book at a Time
Throughout this summer’s programs and leadership experiences, BBYO teens pledged to make a difference in their communities, regions and chapters. Around the world, we’re seeing amazing examples of Alephs and BBGs changing the game!
Alexa Grabelle, a sophomore in South Jersey Region (Chevrah BBG #2342), is one of these gamechanging teens! Alexa was awarded $36,000 from Diller Tikkun Olam Awards for her organization, Bags of Books. She started this program to combat illiteracy, foster a love of reading, and help level the playing field for low-income children by providing them with books of their choice. Since the program began in 2011, they’ve collected over 70,000 books which have been distributed to children in the Philadelphia and Camden areas!
