October Local Missions Collection: Book Harvest

bookharvestWe are collecting gently used or new children’s books and placing them in the hands and homes of children who need them. Recent studies show that the single biggest predictor of academic success is the presence of books in the home. More than half of all underprivi- leged children own no books at all; with your help, we can change that. Just bring your books to the parish hall and place them in the brightly colored bins. To learn more about Book Harvest, please visit www.bookharvestnc.org. Thank you for helping to ensure a brighter future for all our children by filling their lives with books! Questions? Contact:Tina Saleeby
