Thank you, library donors!


As one of HBA President Benny Agosto, Jr.’s initiatives for the year, the HBA Lawyers for Literacy Committee collected monetary donations to refurbish and purchase books for the library at Shearn Elementary School. A generous anonymous donor matched $15,000 in donations to support this mission. The committee also built Little Free Libraries in low-income neighborhoods throughout Houston.

The HBA Lawyers for Literacy Committee would like to thank everyone who has donated to the Shearn Elementary School Library Rebuild Project.
