This community-based book drive, in its 25th year, aims to provide every child in kindergarten through second grade in the Stevens Point area a book for Valentine’s Day.
“As active members of the Central Wisconsin community, Worzalla associates see the importance of celebrating reading. The titles we are donating to Books from the Heart are meant to inspire young people to see the world from another perspective,” said Kendra Robinson, HR Program Coordinator at Worzalla.
Worzalla is donating 100 books for each grade level: kindergarten, first grade and second grade. Titles include popular children’s books the book printer manufacturers at its headquarters in Stevens Point Wisconsin like a variety of “National Geographic Kids Readers”, “Step Into Reading” series, “Who Was” series and “Where the Wild Things Are”. Books from the Heart is organized by Sally Crane, Reading Teacher at J.F. Kennedy Elementary School in Junction City and is sponsored by the Stevens Point Area Educators.
