The 2018 Children’s Book Drive for underprivileged kids throughout the area has kicked-off this season. The annual drive has collected over 13,000 books since it began 20 years ago. 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 15. 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 next year.
