The Mission Committee is thrilled to announce 2020 Summer Mission project in support of Bernie’s Book Bank. Through the PCWS book drive, we will help this vital organization process and distribute books to under-served infants, toddlers and school-age children throughout the Chicagoland area. Bernie’s distributes quality new and gently used children’s books to provide book ownership among children. In the 10 years since their founding, they had placed 15 MILLION books into the hands of children who don’t have books.
Starting our book drive this month seems a perfect time for our housebound congregation. As we continue our ‘stay-in-place’ protocol during the month of May, we ask you to check around your home for gently used books that would be appropriate for children from birth through 6th grade reading level. The books can be fiction, non-fiction, chapter books, picture books and everything in between. Bernie’s won’t accept collecting textbooks, dictionaries, coloring books or religious books. Bi-lingual books are accepted as long as English is one of the languages.
If you have immediate questions about the book drive or what books are desired feel free to contact Janet Andersen.
