ILLINOIS BIBLE INSTITUTE Christian WCIC/PEORIA, IL will distribute 1,150 books to all the first graders in PEORIA's DISTRICT 150 TOMORROW (6/2). WCIC partnered with BARNES & NOBLE and HOERR'S BEREAN BOOKSTORE to kick off the book drive on APRIL 21st and concluded on MAY 14th.
"We're so excited that every first grader in DISTRICT 150 will break for the summer with a brand new book to call their very own. First grade marks an important milestone for children's literacy. This makes it so important that each child has access to books," said Station Manager DAVE BROOKS. "The fact that we wrapped up the book drive two weeks early thanks to the generous hearts of our listening family and community is extraordinary. We hope these children continue to embrace reading well into their high school years and adulthood."
