Proceeds will benefit Better World Books and Journey Into Reading, both of which raise awareness for youth literacy. The book drive will be ongoing and donations will be accepted year-round. At the end of the year, books and donations will be sent to their respective foundations.
"With literacy you can empower so many people," said Caballero. "Literacy is centered on so many cultures and people; we are empowering children, men, and women."
In a campus and community where minorities are relatively small in numbers, Sigma Lambda Upsilon continues to teach about multiculturalism.
"We strive to educate others about the importance of diversity," added Caballero.
