For the past six years, we have hosted our Annual Story Time Celebration as a super blowout version of the “host your own” book-raiser. There are arts and crafts, celebrity story time, yummy treats, and a “bookstore” full of books ready to be donated. As a result of this event, we have been able to donate over 20,000 books to children in need. Needless to say, it is always a HUGE success!!
Over the years, all 20,000+ of these books have been donated to Operation School Bell, an amazing non-profit organization working out of Los Angeles. Their mission is to provide clean clothes, well-fitting shoes, grooming kits, backpacks, school supplies, and any other items that will give the most underserved and at-risk children in Los Angeles the chance to succeed in school!
“Operation School Bell served 5,500 School Children during the 2011-12 school year, and 11,000 books, 5,500 pairs of shoes and 227,000 articles of clothing were distributed during the year.”
As a result of our support and donations over the years, the folks over at Operation School Bell decided to present us with an award at their Spring Affaire Luncheon last weekend! Our founder, Meredith Alexander, was there to accept this award and she rocked it!
Thank you Operation School Bell for the award and all that you do!!
