Each year, for the last 3 years, we have participated in a toy drive for foster kids. This year we are joining forces with Leeanne to gather books for kids. Summer can be challenging for Children in the foster system and we want to offer some support to Leeanne and local kids.
Books take us to new places, help us explore the world, and spark our imaginations. We want to give that to kids who are experiencing challenges in their young lives. We want to give them something that is theirs and will help them adventure in new ways.
Leeanne once told us that so many of these children show up with nothing. Sometimes not even a toothbrush. Take a look at your own, or your child’s, bookshelf and remember the joy you received from all of those books. Let’s give these kids the sam inspiration and joy from having their own book.
Her goal is 6000 books because there are approximately 6000 kids in foster care in the valley! Our goal is 300! We can do this!
We are looking for books for all ages.
We’ll meet at Changing hands to collect books. If you can’t be there feel free to order books on Amazon and have them shipped to me.
If you can not make it, you can contact Jenny to arrange pick up or delivery.
