Jersey Shore InMotion & Jersey Shore Hurricane News are both proud to assist NJ marketing agency CMDS with their book drive benefiting the Bridge of Books Foundation, a non-profit organization providing books to underprivileged and at risk children across New Jersey.
You can help make a difference in a child’s life this holiday season by donating your extra or no longer used children’s books.
The goal at The Bridge of Books is to get as many books as possible into the hands of New Jersey’s underserved children. They collect books through book drives, individual donations, publisher overstocks and corporate donors. They also purchase books for special programs run throughout New Jersey and to supplement distributions with certain genres that are not typically part of the collections that they receive. They distribute books through various agencies, community events, schools and other venues.
As the 2015 holidays approach, there is so much to be thankful for at Bridge of Books. This year they distributed 110,000 books across the state – crushing the 73,000 books we distributed in 2014. This means that roughly 45,000 underserved children across New Jersey now have books to call their own.
Their successes this year are a direct measure of the expanding support – both corporate and individual – that are received from members of the community all across New Jersey.
