In partnership with Watchung Booksellers, Barista Kids’ first Holiday Book Drive in support of The Children’s Book Pantry of Orange was a huge success. Pictured above are just some of the more than 100 books that were donated to kids in Orange ensuring many children received the joy of a book of their own during the holidays.
We are grateful to all of those in the community who supported this effort, and especially to Margot and the wonderful staff at Watchung Booksellers who made this project possible by facilitating the effort in general, offering a discount on books purchased, and by going truly above-and-beyond in their generosity when they also provided many, many new books to the drive from the store directly.
Thank you again to everyone who made it possible to share the magic of reading with children this holiday season.
You can continue to give the gift of literacy to young children! Donations can be made year-round to the Book Pantry of Orange. The coordinator of the Book Pantry collects both new and used books – just email Carol for details. In addition to donation locations in Montclair and South Orange, Carol can also arrange for pick-up directly from your home.
