Donate to Read to Grow
Monday, April 04, 2011
Clean out the bookshelves and look under the kid’s beds and help the Kiwanis Club share the joy of reading. The Kiwanis Club of Fairfield is undertaking their annual literacy challenge by sponsoring a town-wide book drive that runs from April 4 through April 15, 2011. It will involve the collection of new and gently used books that will be donated to Read to Grow Inc., for distribution to Connecticut communities with a need, to encourage literacy, joy of reading and most importantly to promote early language development. These books should be appropriate for children of all ages up to the 8th grade reading level.
Please go through your closets, attics and basements and see what you can donate to help underprivileged children. Collection bins will be placed in both branches of the Fairfield Public Library and all the town’s public schools (K-12) as well as several of the town’s private nursery schools.
The Kiwanis Club of Fairfield has found this cause to be an excellent way of involving the entire family in giving back to the community while also encouraging literacy on a town-wide level. For additional information or to locate a collection bin please contact Tove Vanderblue at 203-255-4716
