Blast Off for Books!

May 27, 2018

A group from BLC’s LYO will be traveling to Houston, TX in June for National Youth Gathering.  The Gathering is offering an in-kind donation opportunity for congregations to support called “Blast Off for Books,” which supports child literacy in the Houston area.

In joining the Gathering’s Blast Off for Books campaign, you will help ensure bright futures for Houston’s students.  The books you donate will be distributed at community book fairs, camps and other events around the city as part of the Gathering’s Service Learning experience.  By putting books in the hands of Houston’s economically disadvantaged students, you can help change lives.

To support this initiative, please visit the following link which provides more information, including a link to the Amazon Wish List where you can purchase a book(s) to donate to Houston children in need: http://www.elca.org/YouthGathering/details/offerings

For those who would prefer to donate a book “in person” vs. online, please watch for a display in the Narthex after May 20!
