In 2019, we hosted our first Book Drive for the holidays! We teamed up with local businesses to assist with gathering children's books. We also collected gently used or new children's books from many of our VK customers who wanted to help and donate.
Once all books were collected we spent the holiday season wrapping these gifts for children to have a present to open during the month of December. It was a great time organizing this and gathering all supplies to make this something special for the children.
We were able to collect books and gift to the following organizations:
CASA of Galveston County
Autism Moms Group
We also used proceeds from November sales to purchase new books for children and host a small pizza party at Today's Harbour For Children. The organization had their students make a wish list and the VK team went to a local book store to purchase the books from the list. We also made the day extra special with a surprise Pizza Party for the Children at Today's Harbour For Children. Victoria dressed up as an elf and I dressed in Christmas attire along with my 2 nieces who were our special little helpers for the day. It was a great event!
