MPTC Donates Books to Rural Schools

(Fond du Lac) In a recent act of generosity Moraine Park Technical College made a donation to support literacy and reading in rural schools throughout the region.  Partnering with the United Way of Fond du Lac, Dodge, and Washington counties, MPTC donated over 1,700 books to rural elementary and middle schools, as more than 40 Moraine Park staff and students volunteered to sort, personalize and deliver the books to schools in Campbellsport, Oakfield, Dodgeland, Hustisford, Jackson, Kewaskum, West Bend, and Hartford.  The distributed books focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion.  Amber Kilawee, Director of the Fond du Lac Area United Way says “culturally relevant books help to engage all of our readers because they build on the lived experiences of students,” adding “they provide an advantage in terms of academic performance outcomes.” Moraine Park has Campuses in Fond du lac, West Bend, and Beaver Dam, more information can be found online at
