November 2021 — Baird-Warner is one of the top-notch residential real estate services organization in the Chicago area. We were very fortunate when one of their top sellers out of their Lincoln Park location reached out and asked if they could hold a fundraiser for us. It was an exciting night (Bingo night) and the efforts of many of the agents helped raise $3,160 for Your Children's Bookshelf.
October 2021 — Richmond/Spring Grove Rotary has been a tremendous supporter of Your Children's Bookshelf over the past couple of years. From momentary donations (grants) to several book drives that netted over 4,800 books we were very pleased to take part in their annual Operation Warm Coat event. YCB was provided 600 books to 100 Richmond Area kids.
October 2021 — Emerald Place was one of Your Children's Bookshelf original Program Partners all the way back in April 2020.

We were excited to supply totes/books for the 55 care givers that included 400 children's books.
October 2021 — YCB participated in our first ever McHenry Murder Mystery as a clue spot. What a fun day as participants became detectives as they work through puzzles and piece together clues to find out whodunnit! Using a combination of a scavenger hunt app, video clues, and live interactions, the sleuths will travel around downtown McHenry trying to solve the case. Ton's of fun interactions and great people visited YCB. Thank you everyone for your kind donations.
