Our latest outreach project, Books for Bethany House yielded a donation of 45 books to Bethany House Services, a family shelter in Cincinnati, OH. Through book purchases and monetary donations, Blue Manatee Literacy Project and Bookstore will supply books that will be given to children experiencing homelessness. Their mission to
(partner) with local schools, educators, volunteers and staff, (donate) books help build classroom and home libraries, with books in varying reading levels and written by own-voices authors and
to spread the love of reading to all children across Cincinnati—in the hopes that we will watch them grow and flourish, and continue to spread that love of reading throughout their life.– www.bluemanatee.org
This project took the place of this year’s annual Toy Swap which was not held due to Covid-19.
