July 2020 — It is always an amazing thing when another Non-Profit Organization reaches out to assist Your Children’s Bookshelf in our mission to provide FREE children’s books - encouraging the love of reading, fostering literacy and education. Family Credit Management did such that and donated over 440 books by Author Sarabeth O’Neil. We are overly excited to have “Kathryn and Elizabeth Go Shopping” in our YCB library and be able to share them with children and families this fall.
June 2020 — Your Children’s Bookshelf was excited to assist in supplying books to Glen Ellyn Children’s Resource Center for their Summer Reading Program (https://www.gecrc.com/programs/#sp). We are also pleased to have them as a Program Partner and look forward to a long relationship. Thank you @gecrc. YCB purchased 73 new books as part of our certificate program.
GECRC’s mission is to help children from low-income families receive the necessary skills in academics and social interaction to move successfully through school and into adulthood. They do this by providing after-school and summer programs, using the talents of teachers, volunteer tutors, GECRC Staff and a variety of local organizations.
April 14, 2020 - May 14, 2020 — Your Children's Bookshelf was pleased to be part of the FIRST-EVER Giving DuPage Days! Through our wonderful donors YCB raised close to $3,000 dollars to continue our mission of encouraging the love of reading, fostering literacy and education. Giving DuPage was our wonderful host and over 1,300 people came together county-wide to send a resounding message of hope to Your Children's Bookshelf and our local nonprofit community. Every gift made a REAL IMPACT for YCB and over 80 local charities.
We were very excited to have picked up our check after the month long #GivingDuPageDays. The physical size of the check was small but the AMOUNT of the check was LARGE!!!! @givingdupage
