Giving Back:: "Abbott Elementary" will provide Free Scholastic Book Fairs to Underfunded Schools

Along with announcing the hit show's 2nd season renewal, ABC shared that the sitcom has partnered with the Scholastic book fair for several underfunded schools across the nation.  So far, reports state that Philadelphia, LA, Erie PA, St. Paul, Flint Michigan, and El Monte California are on the schedule list.  Students will receive 2 free books and Teachers will receive 10 free books.

"Abbott Elementary" doesn't stop there.  Show front runner and creator, Quinta Brunson, told NPR that she redirected some of the show's marketing money to help teachers buy school supplies.  
It’s about being able to make those kinds of decisions that really excite me, things that can really materially help people."  Making a difference and giving back to the community.  Round of applause.
