Give the Gift of Reading
Valley Green Bank is sponsoring the 3rd Annual Holiday Book Drive for Kids that benefits the students at Mastery Charter Elementary Schools.
In the holiday spirit, Valley Green Bank is holding its 3rd annual local book drive from November 26 thru December 31. The Mastery Charter elementary schools – Mann, Harrity and Smedley – will be the recipients of this year’s collection. The book drive encourages families to donate new or gently used children’s books, preschool through 8th grade. The collected books will be distributed to the three elementary schools.
Local bookstore, Big Blue Marble Bookstore in Mt. Airy is joining in this effort encouraging customers to buy children’s books for this important initiative that will put books into the hands of children who can truly benefit from this donation. Big Blue Marble will be offering a 10% discount on all books purchased and contributed in the store to this book drive.
Bins to collect the books will be in Valley Green Bank’s two locations – 7226 Germantown Avenue in Mt. Airy and 23 W. Highland Avenue in Chestnut Hill. Another bin will be located at Big Blue Marble Bookstore at 551 Carpenter Lane.
Remember you can help the students and Meals on Wheels all in one by doing your shopping with Big Blue Marble Bookstore at 551 Carpenter Lane on Thursday, December 9th during our SHOP FOR THE CAUSE night.
