MLK Read for Peace is an extraordinary service project that places volunteers in kindergarten through third-grade classrooms to read students age-appropriate books about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. A collaborative event between the Montana Campus Compact and the National Coalition Building Institute Missoula (NCBI), MLK Read for Peace provides college student volunteers, community members and National Service Participants the opportunity to spread the message of Dr. King for elementary school students throughout Montana.

The Montana Campus Compact will be holding a book fair at Barnes and Noble on December 11th from 1pm-7pm to raise awareness and funds for the initiative. Just mention Montana Campus Compact or Read For Peace at checkout and a portion of your purchase will be donated to MLK Read For Peace. With the money we raise we will purchase MLK books for the day of service. We will also help out our smaller communities with limited resources and send them some books to read to the students.
