Give the gift of reading to disadvantaged kids this Christmas
  • Thursday 01 November 2012

Sunshine Coast Council will once again partner with the Salvation Army for the annual Christmas book drive to give the gift of reading to disadvantaged children across the region.

Community Programs Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said the community is invited to make a difference to a disadvantaged child’s Christmas by donating a book.

"Books for Kids, now in its thirteenth year, is also a great way to conclude the 2012 National Year of Reading celebrations," she said.

"We are looking for donations of new books to suit either young children or teenagers.

"Books can be dropped into any Sunshine Coast Library between 5 November and 15 December.

"We have partnered with the Salvation Army who will ensure the books are distributed to disadvantaged families across the region."
