United Way & Exchange Bank Collecting Children’s Books for Free Bookmobile Throughout March
Written by admin, March 1st, 2017   

UW Book Drive

Our good friends at United Way of the Wine Country’s Women’s Leadership Council (WLC) have once again organized a broad effort to collect thousands of children’s books for the Free Bookmobile! We are so very grateful for their annual project, which includes participation by all local Exchange Bank branches and several other community partners (please see below for the full list). The drive has been shifted from August to March, which helps us prepare for our big summer outreach! Here’s more from the UW website:

United Way of the Wine Country Women’s Leadership Council (WLC) is proud to present the United Way Children’s Book Drive. During the book drive, community members rally in support of education and childhood literacy by donating new and gently used English and Spanish children’s books. Books are collected during the drive and distributed to kids for free through United Way’s education initiatives and the Free Bookmobile of Sonoma County.  WLC has committed to make a difference in early childhood education in our community, and with your help, we can give all kids a chance to learn and be successful throughout school and life.

Join us to get free books to our area’s kids!  The magic begins as kids choose their books and young minds are opened up to possibilities and worlds which come alive through words on the pages. We need your support to rewrite the story of education for so many in the community.
