URC has a Summer Book Giveaway

cropped-img_06591.jpgIn the summer of 2017, a small crew of 4 retired teachers ventured out to Roseburg High School to find the elusive Lunch Bus! We met the lovely women of the Yellow Lunch Bus who travel around Roseburg, feeding children around the town. First stop was Winchester Elementary, north of town to stop in the parking lot and wait for hungry children to walk, ride or be brought to the site for a healthy lunch provided by the bus. Then we followed setting up our books to give away for free to any child who desired a book or two. We decided to give two books to each child along with a book mark for them to show their folks who had given them the books. On a later date, the next week, a crew of 3, showed up at the YMCA after their lunchtime, to give away books to the children at this site. We want to thank the generosity of the Roseburg Elks Lodge for funding this important outreach into our community to provide children with books for their very own collections! We plan to get more books into the hands of our area children’s hands every summer!!
