NJAEYC Helps First Book Donate 365,000 New Books to Children
Thank you so much for all your hard work in Pennsauken last week, sharing your time and energy with First Book! We distributed nearly 365,000 brand new books to children in need, and we were able to do it because of your incredible help!
More than 100 local organizations drove to pick-up books, and an additional 575 nationwide received boxes of books shipped to their door. Our recipient groups are always eager to share their appreciation and enthusiasm:
“THANK YOU so much for all the books that we picked up last week!
It was great to see all the boxes of books that the kids will be getting.
The warehouse crew was GREAT!”
Our work isn’t done, though – and yours doesn’t have to be either. Below, you’ll find a few links to help keep you up to date on what we’re doing, where we’re going, and how many books we’re getting to the kids who need them most.
The easiest way to keep up with us is to sign up for our monthly newsletter. We’re also on Twitter, so follow @FirstBook and get regular updates from us there. You can even “Like” us on our Facebook page for stories, pictures, and more!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping us distribute new books for children in need!
