Get ready to donate and then shop on Tuesday, April 30, Kenosha County Center, 19600 75th Street in Bristol.

Clean out your closet and bring in your gently used donations, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Shopping will be held form 7 to 8 p.m.

The proceeds will be used to purchase books for the Wisconsin Bookworm project, sponsored by HCE. A set of eight books costs $26 and are read to the students monthly throughout the school year.

There are about 235 children in the Head Start Programs throughout the city and county of Kenosha, which receive a set of books.  Some of these children have never owned a book and are thrilled to finally have their own special books.

Aside from having learned to read themselves, some have even used the books to help teach their parents to read.
