The Community Service Ministry Team is collecting NEW books for Next Door Solutions to Domestic Violence, a local non-profit dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence and their children. Much needed are Spanish & English:
- Books for preschoolers & young children
- Chapter books for upper elementary & middle-schoolers
- Books for teens
Drop off your donations at our table in Fellowship Hall on November 5, 12, 19, 26, and December 3. Cash/checks are also greatly appreciated! We’ll do the shopping for you! (Checks made payable to FCCSJ with “Book Drive” on memo line).
Books, Inc. in the Pruneyard has graciously agreed to work with us. They will give a 15% discount to anyone purchasing books for this book drive. They have ordered a wide selection of Spanish books. They’ve got a great selection of English books too, from toddlers to teens. (Be sure to mention FCCSJ if you shop there!). Hicklebee’s, Amazon, Target, and Barnes & Noble are also great resources. Costco has a good selection of boxed sets (we’ll separate them & donate the books individually, more bang for your buck!)
Thank you for ensuring every child and teen will get a new book of their own this Christmas!
