    Hadley Orr – holding a bin while her mom Alissa Lillie donates a book – is a sophomore at Miramonte, who started a Rise to Read club on campus. The students’ mission is to distribute books to underserved communities to help promote childhood literacy. Inspired by a family friends’ daughter at San Ramon Valley High School, who started a branch on her campus years ago, the black collection bin was placed Nov. 11 in front of The Orinda Association office, 26 Orinda Way. Orindans and students in the club are collecting and donating the books to Kristi Yamaguchi’s foundation called, Always Dream. They are collecting gently used and new books for grades K-5 until Dec. 10.
