2nd Annual Children’s Book Drive
Our Council, in partnership with Stanislaus READS!, Merced County First 5, and Love Our Cities will be helping to collect new and gently used children’s books.
We will do this by distributing collections boxes to various businesses AND canvasing neighborhoods with door hangers just prior to the official collection day of April 8th.
All collected books will be brought to one of two collection sites: the Modesto Scout Service Center or Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church on Saturday, April 8th where books will be sorted, consolidated and counted with our goal being 10,000 books!!
