MLK Day Book GIveaway January 18th
KUMC’s Racial Justice Team and the
Kirkwood Social Justice Coalition will be co-hosting a book giveaway for Martin
Luther King Day along with Meacham Park Neighborhood Improvement
Association(MNIA), EyeSeeMe Bookstore, St. Peter Catholic Church, First Presbyterian
Church of Kirkwood, and Kirkwood United Church of Christ.
At the event on Monday, January 18th,
pre-registered children from four different age groups (Preschool, Elementary
School, Middle School and High School) will be allowed to choose from a selection
of 5 books featuring various genres/subjects based upon their grade/reading
level to take home. EyeSeeMe Bookstore, a local black-owned shop
specializing in multicultural books,
will be providing the books through donations made on behalf of each child. The
event’s goal is to provide books to 400 children on that day.
To help reach
this goal, would you be willing to sponsor a child’s book cost? You can make a
suggested donation of $15 to sponsor a child (or more) through your Realm account by
selecting “MLK Book Event” as the fund, or you can send in a check and write
“MLK Book Event” on the memo line.
