Books for Collier Kids (BCK), a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a steady stream of new books to children in low-income families throughout Collier County, was awarded a $5,000 grant from the Marco Island Fund of the Collier Community Foundation to provide new books for students at Marco’s Tommie Barfield Elementary School (TBE).

“We’re grateful to the Marco Island Fund of the Collier Community Foundation for ensuring all kindergarten through second-grade students at Tommie Barfield Elementary have access to books in the home,” explains BCK Chair Sallie Williams. “Books that they can read, share, cherish; books that help them succeed in school and life.”
