We are partnering with Next Door Milwaukee to help serve the needs of families in the city. For 30 years, Next Door’s Books for Kids program has collected and distributed more than 1 million books to children across Milwaukee. Research shows that the number of books available to a child may surpass all other variables in predicting their long-term success in school.
We are hosting a Book Drive to support their good work and need you to make our Book Drive a success!
- All donations need to be gently used or new books for children.
- Especially needed are books for children 0-5 years of age, multicultural books, and board books.
We will be collecting books:
- During our in-person church events this fall.
- Tuesdays in October, 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. in the blue bin outside First Church.
- Or, visit Next Door’s Amazon Wish List to purchase the books needed most. They will ship directly to Next Door.
Start collecting those books & thank you for supporting our Book Drive!
