Beverly Hills High School Skills USA Community Service Chapter will be advancing to the USA state competition in San Diego on Saturday. The chapter has spent this past year providing books and art supplies as what BHHS Skills USA chapter leaders Ryan Dubin and Jonah Okum refer to as “Bedtime With Books in a Box” to schools both within Beverly Hills and in neighboring communities. The program promotes the importance of reading aloud and building community spirit. Thus far recipient schools have included La Ballona Elementary School and the Salvation Army Westwood Transitional Village. The program has also inspired a local Girl Scout Troop in Culver City to use Bedtime With Books as their bronze medal program which will enable middle schoolers to read the books provided to elementary school students.
