Holiday Book Drive for Children ages 0 – 5, a success!
Boxes and boxes of classic children’s books: nursery rhymes, finger plays, folk and fairy tales, enduring stories, picture books, board books, early readers, all for early childhood, ages 0-5. were donated this year. Books are in support of an early literacy program at the Living Room sponsored by Women’s National Book Association—San Francisco Chapter.
We are most grateful to our local indie bookstore, Copperfield’s Books, Montgomery Village, 775 Village Ct, Santa Rosa, CA, whose staff and manager watched over and encouraged the Book Drive. http://copperfieldsbooks.com/stores/montgomery-village
Women’s National Book Association, San Francisco Chapter, sponsors a Holiday Book Drive to benefit the Living Room, Santa Rosa, a daytime drop-in center that provides a safe haven to ease the adversity of homelessness for women. Now we are pleased to announce that the SF Chapter has increased its visits to the Living Room from biweekly to weekly: every Monday at 10:o0 am. We are also collaborating with community partners to purchase children’s books at low cost and to request book donations.
Without the efforts and donations of WNBA SF Chapter, there would be no literacy program at the Living Room or focus on children’s books and reading.
To support this developing program, SF Chapter will donate 10% of its net income to purchasing books for the Living Room at deeply discounted prices. But we need your support to make this a real success!
Book Drive: At all our SF Chapter events throughout the year, we will accept classic children’s picture books and board books in English and Spanish.
Thank you for your support of this worthwhile program at the Living Room, our Literacy Partner!
