Thank you for helping us get books to kids in need!

Our Book Bag Care Packages for Kids are reusable totes filled with goodies!

Each contains 3-5 books, a “Fantastic Reader” pencil, an “Open Books, Open Minds” sticker, an organza bag with buttons featuring our cats, bookmarks, a honey straw from local Valhalla Bee Farm, and a handwritten note from our cats.

When we came up with the idea for these kids’ bags,
customers asked if they could buy a bag or two for kids in need.
Book Bag Care Packages for Kids are $22 each.
We created our Kids’ Account to make contributing to this cause more inclusive.
Please help us by giving whatever amount feels right for you.
We are grateful for every dollar that goes toward funding bags we give to kids!

Progress: We sent bags to every child currently being housed in Friendship Home domestic violence shelters. 92, in all. We also provided nearly 50 bags for Voices of Hope, who gave them to children living in families that were intact, but under stress. Right now, we’re working with Cedars, getting bags to kids living in that shelter. After that, we’ll continue this work with other organizations and in the neighborhoods. We think this will be an ever-present need in our community.

“There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.”
