The Netivot Shalom Book Drive! (benefiting the Richmond Kaiser Pediatric Clinic)

book drive
The Richmond Kaiser Pediatric Clinic where CNS member Susan Lawrence works offers used children's books in the waiting room, for entertainment while waiting-- but more importantly to give the message of valuing reading. Kids are encouraged to take a book home if they like it. While some Richmond families are affluent and literate, most are far from being so fortunate. This Mitzvah-effort gives them books to read at home as well. Recently the community member who had been collecting books moved, so there are no more used books in the waiting room. We are asking CNS members to donate books that their children are done with. Please bring your gently-used or new children's books to the shul office by June 20th, and Susan will deliver them!
