Babylon Coffee Roasters’ Book Drive & Fundraiser

Thank you for supporting our work with elementary school children and college-age young adults!

About Us

Project Transformation Central Texas operates summer day camps for elementary school children at three sites in Tarrant County (southeast Fort Worth, northeast Fort Worth and Bedford).  We hire college-aged young adults for paid summer internships to implement and lead our camp curriculum.  Our program is centered around four pillars: Develop Literacy, Celebrate Diversity, Cultivate Leadership and Serve Community.

This Book Drive and Fundraiser will support the literacy component of our summer camps by providing books for children to take home, by increasing the number of books in our camp site reading libraries (each day campers spend 40 minutes reading out loud with an adult volunteer), and funding other direct camp costs.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about PT Central Texas and our work in the community.
