Our sincere thanks to The Flying Pig Bookstore in Shelburne for hosting a book drive over the holiday season to benefit the children served by the Children’s Literacy Foundation (CLiF). We at CLiF are extremely grateful to the thoughtful patrons who donated a total of 65 brand-new, high-quality children’s books to the drive. These books will go directly to at-risk, low-income and rural children served by CLiF through programs and events taking place at elementary schools, community centers, refugee programs, prisons and rural libraries throughout Vermont and New Hampshire. Many of the children we serve have no books at home to call their own and are delighted at the opportunity to choose their own books to keep. Thank you again to all those who bought a book (or books) for CLiF while shopping at The Flying Pig, and helped make a child’s life brighter during the season of giving.
Tracy Goldfine, Children Literacy Foundation
