The Casper College Goodstein Foundation Library is once again teaming up with the Wyoming Food for Thought Project to collect new K-12 kids books. The drive kicked off October 24 and runs through December 2.
Wyoming Food For Thought collects and distributes weekly food bags to K-12 Natrona County students in food-insecure situations. The organization has been around for five years now providing food to hungry kids, and for four of those years, Casper College has provided a book to each FFT recipient before the long winter break. Each year, FFT has served more kids, and each year, Casper College has stepped up to make sure every single one of those K-12 kids gets a NEW book.
This year, the library has set a goal of an even 1,000 books. Collection sites may be found at:
- Digital Learning Center
- Tate Museum
- Gateway, 3rd floor
- Campus bookstore
- Knowledge Nook in the Sunrise Shopping center
- Fort Caspar Academy
- Verda James Elementary
- Their Amazon wish list (because they know you’re busy!)
If you have books, but can’t make it to one of the collection spots, contact book drive coordinator Sarah Mailloux at (307) 268-2137, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the library’s main phone number at (307) 268-2269.
