United Way drive seeks chil­dren’s books

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

United Way of the Dutchess-Or­ange Re­gion’s fall book drive for new and gen­tly used chil­dren’s books for chil­dren up to 8 years old runs through Nov. 15.

The United Way’s goal is to col­lect 1,000 new chil­dren’s books as well as many more gen­tly used chil­dren’s books to stock the shelves at United Way for dis­tri­bu­tion in the com­ing year. Last year, United Way dis­trib­uted more than 10,000 books to com­mu­nity part­ners, plac­ing them in the hands of chil­dren most in need.

The or­ga­ni­za­tion says it needs to re­stock shelves so that stu­dents in Lit­er­acy Con­nec­tions’ Book Bud­dies pro­gram have books they can take home and NDI/YouthBuild/Ameri­corps’ Com­mu­nity Free Li­brary boxes on the streets of Pough­keep­sie re­main well-stocked.

For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.uw­dor.org/ books www.uw­dor.org/ books or call United Way at (845) 471-1900, ext. 3120 or 3114.
