Book Drive

When children read, their lives become more enriched, families benefit and their futures are ultimately changed.

That was the key sense of mission behind the organization of a book drive held for the benefit of children at Carriage Circle and Woodland Heights, two public housing communities in the city of Pontiac.

With the cooperation and encouragement of the Pontiac Housing Commission, employees at FOURMIDABLE in June, with the help of their family and friends, reached out for donations of new and gently used books in an effort that was coordinated by the FOURMIDABLE corporate staff.

Children at both Carriage Circle and Woodland Heights will be receiving new books throughout the summer months.  There will also be a reading contest for those aged 7-12, which is intended to stimulate their interest in reading even further. Prizes will be given to the children that read the most in the contest.

The donated books will be used to establish a children's library at each of the communities.

One of the best results when it comes to reaching out to the community, as in this book drive, it is destined to have lifelong significance to those impacted by the initiative.
