Be sure to stop by EVERY Thursday at the Central Avenue Farmers Market, located at Councilman Curren Price's District Office at 4301 S. Central Ave., to pick up a fresh selection of fruits, vegetables and books. That’s right, books!
In July, Councilman Price partnered with Dr. Claudia Cataldo, Academic Decathlon coach from Santee High School, to hand out free books to CD 9 youth at the weekly farmer’s market from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Dr. Cataldo has distributed hundreds of books to local families to ensure kids are still actively learning throughout these challenging times and strengthen their love for reading. Interested in making a book donation? Contact Dr. Cataldo at [email protected]
