As you are cleaning or out holiday shopping, pick out a book or two to donate.
Since 2007, FUMC has partnered with Pickle Elementary, located in the St. John’s neighborhood. We host twice-annual 25 cent book sales, along with author visits and other literacy programs as needed. The students at Pickle are primarily Hispanic and dual language. The students are appreciative and love to read.

We are collecting donations of new or gently used pre-school and elementary-aged children’s books. We see the greatest demand for bestseller/popular books, plus books of adventure, animals, dinosaurs, and mysteries. Books can be dropped off in the Genesis classroom, located behind the “Library” in the Sanctuary Building or in the collection bin in the Sanctuary foyer.
In addition to book donations, we would appreciate volunteers to help us. To volunteer or for any questions, contact Heather Schuelke at firstname.lastname@example.org.
