If you haven't already noticed, we have a green book donation bin in our North parking lot next to the white Tabitha's Way donation bin. The green book donation bin will be in our parking lot NOW through April 30th. We wish to receive books that are appropriate for children between the ages of 0-15 and that are not political or faith-specific.

The purpose of this bin is for an event called "Read & Feed" which will take place on Saturday, May 15, 2021. (hosted by Tabitha's Way). The event is to encourage children to continue to read during the summer and to educate families facing food insecurity regarding food resources available to them and their children while they are not attending school. Their goal is to gather 10,000 gently used books that children can take home with them and keep to read during the summer.

The children who come to the event will receive a tote bag and will be able to pick out up to 10 books to read during the summer months. During the event, Tabitha's Way will also hand out Summer Feeding Vouchers to guide families to utilize the free food resources at their pantry. Additionally, they will provide information regarding other ways and means to access free food assistance and reading programs, such as Feeding in the Park and city library reading programs within the Nebo School District.
