SCI Cares is Collecting Book Donations in Honor of Addai Dexter-Streeter and His Love for Reading

Corpus Christi, TX – Southern Careers Institute Corpus Christi will be collecting book donations until November 1 and then gifting them to Promesa College Prep School to honor the life of Addai Dexter-Streeter. Addai is the child of an employee at SCI Corpus Christi.  He was known for his hilarious personality, utterly selfless kindness, and of course, his love for reading. 

“At SCI Corpus Christi, we wanted to do something special to commemorate Addai’s spirit and the impression he left on our world. Knowing how much he loved to read, we thought what better way than to organize a book drive in his name,” said Tammy Newsom, Corpus Christi campus director. “SCI Cares is coordinating Addai’s Books to memorialize Addai’s kind-hearted spirit by collecting donations and gifting other children the opportunity to enjoy the pleasure of a good book.”

Promesa College Prep School is an innovative, tuition-free public school that is the fruition of a long-standing dream to have a community school located in the heart of the most historically underserved communities. When its students come to SCI Corpus Christi in November to tour the campus and learn about future career options, SCI hopes they will walk away with canvas bags full of books to stock their library, but SCI needs the community’s help. 

SCI encourages community members to get involved by dropping off new or gently-used, PreK4-8th grade reading level book donations to 2422 Airline Road, Corpus Christi, TX, 78414 or by making a purchase and having it delivered to the SCI Corpus Christi campus using Promesa College Prep School’s personalized Amazon wish list here.

For more information about Addai’s Books and how to participate, please contact Tammy Newsom at [email protected].
