Recently over 11 Borders stores throughout Florida participated in a book and toy drive for Kids Wish Network. The drive took place from July 20th through August 30th and what an amazing event this turned out to be! It was a huge success and it was very exciting to see all of the wonderful books and amazing craft kits that were donated to us. Despite the bad economy, people who purchased items for the drives at the participating stores spared no expense when it came to giving from their hearts.
I am happy to say that all of the merchandise has been inventoried and is being packed up and ready to go to some very deserving children here in Florida such as homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters and charities that serve children in need. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that so many children will have a wonderful holiday all thanks to Borders book stores!
