Books for Collier Kids receives Angel Fund Grant for kindergarten project
Books for Collier Kids (BCK) received a $9,000 Angel Fund grant for the Kindergarten Project through the Community Foundation of Collier County. Collier County Public Schools designate a school Title I when 75 percent or more of the students qualify for the free and/or reduced meal program due to their families’ income. Books for Collier Kids provides new books to children in need. Launched in 2005 as First Book-Collier County, BCK has distributed more than one million new, books to pre-K, kindergarten, first- and second-grade students in need. The volunteer-run charity partners with more than 20 local organizations. For more information, visit www.BooksforCollierKids.org.
