I am calling on my fellow authors to lend a hand and contribute some children’s books for special needs children through Twin Lakes Civitan. I donated books last year to this wonderful group and will do so again this year.
Purpose of the Stories from Maggie Project
In 2011 Twin Lakes Civitan started our book bag project with the purpose of providing book bags filled with books to self-contained special needs students in our local schools. The goal was to provide them with summer reading material to help keep their minds sharp while they weren’t in school. What started out as a small project has now grown tremendously!
Maggie and her grandchildren – In Loving Memory March 13, 1940 – October 29, 2014
Please help this worthy cause if you have participated in the past. If you have not, I hope that you will participate this time around. By supplying books, you will enable special needs children to increase their reading levels.
I received this email from Twin Lakes Civitan:
Stories By Maggie Book Bag Project Twin Lakes Civitan Club
I just wanted to touch base with you. Our club still collects books through out the year to pack in a book bag and give out to Special Needs children in our area schools. At this point, we give to the following schools: Cotter, Norfork, Calico Rock, Mountain Home, Flippin, and Yellville-Summit schools here in northern Arkansas. We may add a christian academy this year. We filled approx. 180 book bags last year. The kids and the teachers love the project. It is accually one of our favorite projects.
The books you have sent to us in the past were wonderful and most appreciated. We were wondering if you would be interested in helping us again this year.
Our address is still Twin Lakes Civitan P.O. Box 1613 Mountain Home, AR 72654. Again, thank you very much.
