Share a new or gently used book for a family in need!
Blue Ridge PBS is partnering with David and Michelle Baldacci’s, ”Wish You Well Foundation” to collect new and gently used books for our community. The books we collect will be distributed locally through our local Feeding America Food Banks, supporting the Feeding Body & Mind program which addresses the links between literacy, poverty, and hunger.
We’ll have a big white box at the Berglund Performing Arts Center during our event for you to drop a new or gently used book or two for a local family in need.
The “Wish You Well Foundation” has collected and distributed over 1 million new and slightly used books to families in need.
