Book Drive At Waldenbooks In Elkhart Ends. But, At R.E.A.C.H. a Child! Indiana, It's Just the Beginning For the 300+ Books.
On April 20, I wrote a post here about how Hoosiers in Elkhart were helping Hoosiers across the state by donating books to Indiana's R.E.A.C.H. a Child! Over 140 books were donated. That was really great, but it gets even better. That's because, this past Tuesday, Olivia Jobe - the Store Manager at Elkhart's Waldenbooks - delivered another 214 books!
Because of the generosity of Olivia, her team, and the people of Elkhart, 344 children in Northern Indiana experiencing a traumatic situation will receive a new book from a police officer or firefighter. On behalf of those kids, as well as everyone at With Wings & a Halo - R.E.A.C.H. a Child!, thank you Elkhart, Olivia and the entire team at Waldenbooks.
