The 2016 Children’s Book Drive collected more than 600 books this year for underprivileged kids throughout the area. Saturday was the final day books were collected at sponsoring Kewaunee and Door County outlets. Kewaunee County Food Pantry Director Ken Marquardt explains the importance of the campaign every year.
Books were dropped off at Craig’s Piggly Wiggly in Algoma, Bayside Home Medical in Sturgeon Bay and Sister Bay Mobil in Northern Door County. The Kewaunee County Food Pantry, Feed My People in Sturgeon Bay, Door of Life Christian Church Food Pantry and Koinonia Kupboard at First Baptist Church in Sister Bay will distribute the books to Children throughout the holidays and into the new year.
