The 2017 Children’s Book Drive for underprivileged kids throughout the area kicked-off yesterday. The annual drive has collected over 12,000 books since it began in 1999. Books can be dropped off at Craig’s Piggly Wiggly in Algoma or Bayside Home Medical in Sturgeon Bay. Kewaunee County Food Pantry Director Ken Marquardt explains the importance of having the campaign every year.
Gently used or new books can be donated for the Children’s Book Drive until December 16. The Kewaunee County Food Pantry in Algoma and Door County Feed my People in Sturgeon Bay will then distribute the books to children throughout the holidays and into the new year.
