Annual Children’s Book Drive begins April 1st.
In Partnership with the Massachusetts Credit Union League we are collecting books for children through the annual Children’s Book Drive. Last year 25 Massachusetts Credit Unions collected 9,308 children’s books with a grand total of more than 314,329 donated to many non-profit agencies in cities and communities throughout the state.
The Children’s Book Drive embraces the importance of reading by providing thousands of books that introduce children to a world of knowledge inside those books. Books picked up by the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless will assist A Bed for Every Child initiative as books are given to every child that receives a bed.
The Coalition will facilitate the collection process and distribute donated books through A Bed for Every Child Initiative. Every bed delivered to a child includes a mattress, linens and a bag of books!
The Book Drive will begin April 1, 2019, and continue through April 30, 2019, You can support this great cause by donating a children’s book at our Medford, Everett, Norwood, and Dorchester(Adams Village), Mass Ave. branch locations.
