Endeavoring to reach out to those close to home, our congregation collects new and used children’s books each Christmas under our giving tree to provide to Bernie’s Book Bank. Volunteers have also helped in out in several All Ages Outreach Projects by heading to the Bernie’s Book Bank warehouse to process, sort, sticker, and package books for delivery. Additionally ,UCLB Outreach provided financial gift towards the purchase of new trucks for book delivery. We look forward to another year in partnership helping to get books into the hands of children who need them!
Bernie’s Book Bank facilitates the collection, processing and redistribution of quality new and gently used children’s books so as to significantly increase book ownership among at-risk infants, toddlers and school-age children living throughout Chicagoland.
