Anderson’s Bookshop customers can help children in need receive a special read.
“Jan’s Book Angels” returns for the holiday season to bring out generosity Anderson’s way.
“So we work with local organizations like Humanitarian Service Project and Bridge Communities, who give us names of children in need and every child is represented with a little paper angel. Then our customers come in and they purchase books and we wrap and distribute the books to the organizations,” explained Sue Skells, the coordinator for the program.
Generous customers can purchase hardcover books of their choice that fit in the age range of the child they select, or they can purchase pre-matched books for convenience.
Last year over 3,000 books were distributed to children in need, to help promote literacy and a love of reading.
“Jan’s Book Angels” is going on now through the first week in January.
