The 2013 Children’s Book Drive successfully wrapped up this past week. Over 1,000 books were donated to the Door County Feed My People and Kewaunee County Food Pantry. For the past six weeks, new and gently used books were dropped off at Sister Bay Mobil and Bay Pharmacy in Door County , as well as Craig’s Piggly Wiggly and Village Kitchen in Kewaunee County.
Ken Marquart of the Kewaunee County Food Pantry in Algoma explains how the books will be distributed through the holidays and into 2014.
The Children’s Book Drive has collected and distributed over 10,000 books the past 13 years to underprivileged children along the Peninsula. The Friends of the Door County Library again helped sort the books for easier distribution.
