Sandy Chin is The Chief Investment Officer at Tidal Bore Capital. Chin has over 20 years of experience in the financial sector. Chin has developed a reputation for being able to complete tasks in a timely manner.
Recently, Sandy Chin noticed that something needed to be done at PS11, a public elementary school in New York City. Many of the students there needed books to read over the summer, which put a financial strain on those families. PS11 serves students who live in low income housing projects, so Sandy Chin offered to help those in need.
Many children experience a decrease in their reading skills over the summer because they are performing other activities. Some children may not read at all during their summer vacation because they do not have access to books. As a result, many children forget some of the lessons they’ve learned by the time that the next school year starts. While Chin’s son attends PS11, she makes sure that her son has access to a large supply of books.
To help children stay engaged during the summer, many libraries have organized summer reading programs. However, many kids don’t have the opportunity to go to the library. Research has shown that many children become attached to books, holding them in the same regard as their favorite toys. Chin fell in love with reading books at an early age.
To help children possibly find that love for books that she has, Chin decided to hold a summer book drive at PS11. The goal was to collect used books that could be given away to the students at PS11. This would allow all of the kindergarten children to take home books during their summer vacation.
The event, titled Books, Boxes, & Bodies, was a success. Chin notes that more books were donated than she expected. There were more than three thousand books donated over the course of the week. The extra books made it possible for children in each grade level to take home multiple books to read during their summer vacation.https://www.bloomberg.com/research/stocks/private/person.asp?personId=262047475&privcapId=328177958&previousCapId=328177958&previousTitle=Tidal%20Bore%20Capital
