On behalf of the Bee County Toys for Tots program, I would like to thank the Beeville Evening Lions Club for their interest in and support of our 2013 book drive.
One of the Lions Club’s international projects this year is promoting literacy, and one of the Toys for Tots recommendations is that each child we serve receive at least two special toys and a book. We did not specify books in our collection drive last year, and as a result received very few. However, this year we will make clear that we’d like donations of both toys and books.
The Evening Lions Club has already provided 20 beautiful children’s books for this year’s program, and they are discussing possible ways to assist us in collecting many more.
Many thanks to these club members dedicated to making a difference in our community.
