By now everyone knows that we have joined forces with RE children to challenge the horcrux of ILLITERACY. $700 was collected Sunday the 12th toward the purchase of books for Lincoln School! But there is still some distance to go to purchase 320 books, which cost about $7 per book—and our goal is to win this battle. Our plan is to deliver the books after Spring Break in April, so we still have time to buy books from Bookbug at a 15% discount. (Use code LINCOLN)
Can you help in this effort? Please choose one of these ways:
1: purchase a book(s) at Bookbug in the Oakwood Plaza and put them in the box at church,
2: go online and follow the People’s Church link to select and purchase the books you want to donate, which will be delivered to church,
3: put a contribution in an envelope marked Books for Lincoln. Then watch the “thermometer of books” climb in the lobby so you can see when this challenge has been met. Thank you.
