The 21st Annual Children’s Book Drive for Door and Kewaunee counties is already exceeding numbers from last year. The yearly book drive for underprivileged kids has collected over 14,000 books in the past 20 years. Over 800 books have been collected to date with the promotion continuing until December 20. Ashley Madson, receiving coordinator for the Thrift Store in Sturgeon Bay, says parents really appreciate the opportunity for their children to receive books this time of year.
Gently used or new books for the 2019 Children’s Book Drive can be donated by dropping them off at Bayside Home Medical in Sturgeon Bay, Denny’s Super Valu in Algoma and Stodola’s IGA in Luxemburg. Books will be distributed by food pantries in Door and Kewaunee County.
