In November we begin our annual children’s book drive to benefit the Fair Oaks Community Center in Redwood City. As part of their holiday food distribution, IMC will donate new or nearly-new books for several hundred children. It’s a delightful way for our sangha to offer dana to our under resourced neighbors. Not only does it promote a love of reading, it brings smiles to many young faces as they select a special book for themselves and their siblings. Books from pre-school through high school ages are needed. If “nearly new”, please be sure there is no writing in them or missing parts. Look for the collection box in the community hall in November. We will also need volunteers to sort the books. The date for distribution is December 9th, so please donate books or checks (made out to “The Reading Bug”) by December 8th.
To help or if you have questions, please contact Hilary Borison at IMC.VolunteerDirector@gmail.com.
