A trip to the book store could mean a better Christmas for kids going through a tough time.
Books-A-Million Joplin has partnered with Children’s Haven of Southwest Missouri for a 3rd year for a holiday book and toy drive. Customers can choose any children’s book or toy and take it to the register to donate. Items on the wish list include books, video games, robots, or legos.
“We’re trying to help out the community, help out, children that may not be in the most stable of environments. Yeah, and making sure they have an amazing holiday season,” says Haeli Matlin-Nichols, Books-A-Million General Manager.
The Toy and Book Drive will wrap up a few days before Christmas.
