It’s that time of year when we collect gently used or new books for grades K-8 to donate to Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s Reach Out and Read program. Nothing has really changed over the years, as far as the collection of books goes, so I am refraining from sending out the same attachments that I’ve sent year after year. However, if you would like me to send them to you, just let me know.
We will collect books until March 9th this year. After that point, shoot me an email and let me know if there are books to pick up at your location, and I’ll make arrangements to come by one day during the week of March 12th.
If your school would like to donate cash, Nationwide Children’s Hospital will be thrilled to use those donations to purchase new books through Half Price Books in Columbus. You can forward the money to me, and I’ll get it to Children’s. If you are writing a check for a donation, please make the checks out to Nationwide Children’s Hospital. I will hold all checks until the end of the drive and mail them all at once. If you would, you may date the check for March 9th, since that is when I will mail them to Children’s.
If you have any questions, concerns, or great ideas for making your school’s drive a success, please feel free to email me. Thank you in advance for your support, year after year, in our endeavor to help those less fortunate than ourselves.
