9 years ago, I learned about a non-profit agency, Family Building Blocks, serving Marion & Polk Counties as a relief nursery and provides prevention services for families facing overwhelming life circumstances. Their overall mission is to keep children safe and families together. Through an internship and later employment, I was able to see first hand the impact they have on kids and families. The smiles I would see on these kids faces when greeting them off the bus and kids piling pom poms in my hands are some of the best memories I have working there.
Because I was able to witness the agency's impact and see the resources these kids have and don't have, I have decided to hold a book drive in honor of Family Building Blocks and connect these kids with some much needed books. As an independent consultant for Usborne Books & More, I personally know these books would be loved by at least 400 kids! Plus, whatever we are able to raise, Usborne Books & More will match 50% getting more books to into these homes!!
Here is what your donation will equate to in books:
$10 = 1 picture book
$35 = 5 touchy feely interactive books
$80 = 20 board books
$130 = 15 activity books
This book drive will go through until the end of the month. So lets get this book drive started!!
