Children’s Home and Aid Holiday Book Drive

December 4, 2013 

Children’s Home and Aid is a non-profit organization that works with abused and neglected children and their families by providing therapy, counseling, a safe haven and emergency help for teens who run away or are locked out.

How to help

Books-A-Million in Edwardsville and the Fairview Heights Barnes & Noble are partnering with Children’s Home + Aid to send the gift of books to children in need. Customers are invited to purchase books and donate them to the children and teens served by Children’s Home + Aid. A list of suggested children's books will be available for customers. The book drive runs from through Dec. 24 at both stores.
