Family Resource Center St. Croix Valley is pleased to partner with Thrivent Financial to hold a ‘Give a Child a Book’ board book drive. Every new or gently used board book contributed will be shared with families participating in the Family Resource Center’s Home Visiting program. Thrivent member and Family Resource Center board member Barbara Nelson is sponsoring the event, and has received a grant to purchase a book for each one donated.
“I’m pleased to be able to provide extra support to families through this project,” said Barbara. “Promoting literacy from birth is a key component of Family Resource Center programming. I am hopeful that matching support from Thrivent will help inspire our community to give generously.”
The goal of the project is to collect at least 100 books appropriate for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. Books will be collected from mid-February until the end of March. Please contact the Family Resource Center at 715-684-4440 or email@example.com if your business or civic group would like to participate in the book drive. We are also looking for community locations that are willing to be a drop-site for donations. Thank you for your support!
