JCLC Teams Up with Barnes & Noble and California Pizza Kitchen for Fundraiser and Book Drive
This holiday season, take a break from the hustle & bustle and give the gift of reading.
Visit Barnes & Noble December 10-14 and buy a children’s or young adult’s book(s) to donate to the YWCA Santa’s Workshop (as well as the rest of your holiday shopping). You must present a Barnes & Noble voucher at time of purchase, or enter the voucher ID number if purchasing online at bn.com. Vouchers may be printed from http://www.jclc.org/Reader/2012/winter/page4.htm, or picked up at any Jefferson County public library. A percentage of your entire purchase will be donated to the libraries of Jefferson County.
Next, stop by California Pizza Kitchen and drop off your book(s) to be donated to the YWCA while enjoying a bite to eat, anytime December 10-14. Dine in, take out or cater; you can even go to cpk.com and order online. You must present a California Pizza Kitchen voucher to your server, which are available at http://www.jclc.org/Reader/2012/winter/page4.htm, or any Jefferson County public library. 20% of your check will be donated to the libraries of Jefferson County.
On December 14, donated books will be delivered to the YWCA Santa’s Workshop, an annual holiday event for families living in shelters and transitional housing.
