Children’s Book Drive

Published on 03/27/2014. Related articles: community

April is Children's Book Month!  To celebrate, Mass Bay Credit Union is partnering with the Massachusetts Credit Union League and the Credit Union Community Hope Initiative by hosting a book drive during the month of April.  We will have a box displayed in the lobby of each branch to collect new or gently used children’s books from Mass Bay members.  The drive will run from April 1 to April 30.  The Coalition will then donate the collected books to organizations in our community that need them.  Reading helps children expand their vocabulary and writing skills, promotes healthy social and emotional development and longer attention spans that translates to better retention in school.  Nearly two-thirds of low-income families do not own books for their children.  Now more than ever, it’s important to collect books for kids who may not have access to one!
