Local students donate to Give a Kid a Book program
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD — Fourth grade students in Karen Bloczynski’s and Christy Treankler’s classes at Washington Elementary collected money for a community project. This year the money was used to purchase books for the Give a Kid a Book program.
Give a Kid a Book is sponsored by Friends of the Marshfield Public Library. Joyce Fox, the program’s chairperson, was present to collect the books.
The books will be distributed to several community organizations, such as Big Brothers Big Sisters and Headstart; to children staying at the hospital; and many others.
In addition to giving the books, the students created cards to go with each book. The cards were personalized to describe why they chose the book they did.
