HERMON – This weekend Hermon High School’s Key Club is collecting children’s books for the Boys and Girls Club of Bangor.
They welcome any books at reading levels for children in grades kindergarten to 8th.
Isabel Rios-Mallett, president of Hermon High School’s Key Club said the group is the high school level of Kiwanis International. The Hermon Key Club focuses on local projects by helping out children in the school districts and ways to give-back to the community. She stated “The Boys and Girls Club, they work towards helping children reach their full potential as citizens of the community. And so they’ll benefit from these books by being able to use them and engage in learning activities.”
If you’re doing some summer cleaning, you can donate those books, the fun-filled family event will also have some characters from books dressed up.
It’s this Sunday August 27th and runs from noon to 3 p.m. at the Antique Marketplace and Cafe in Bangor.
The books will stay at the Boys and Girls Club for kids to read them there.
