Fighting Lead with LiteracyFighting Lead with Literacy
February 1 - 25
The Flint Water Crisis is a humanitarian tragedy. Allegan County is joining the effort to support the children of Flint by collecting new books. Exposure to lead may create significant learning problems. Providing books is one way to promote literacy and make a difference in the future of Flint children.
You can help by donating new books at one of the convenient drop off locations in Allegan County during the month of February. Books will be collected and transported to Flint for distribution to families in need. Financial donations are appreciated with checks made out to AAESA. (Memo-Books for Flint)
