The McDonald County Library gives annually to this event, and this year we contacted Scholastic Publishing Company and asked if they might donate some materials the children might like. They generously sent us 250 various Christmas-related books that the children will love. We greatly appreciate their generosity which they have shown not only for this event, but for many other events through the years.
Their company slogan as stated on their website is as follows:
Scholastic makes a difference together with you and your community…
For nearly 90 years, Scholastic has recognized the importance of working with public, private, and non-profit organizations that share its mission and goals to improve the well-being of children. Scholastic’s total commitment to social responsibility and educational outreach is demonstrated by its diverse partnerships, which address today’s most critical issues facing communities, with an emphasis on reading and literacy.
Thank you Scholastic for caring for the children of small communities like ours!
