Your cooperation in making our annual book drive very successful is truly appreciated. Three-thousand books-plus was our total this year and without the help of you this would not have been possible. There was a 50 percent increase in collection of books this year over last year.

Kiwanis is an international service organization serving the children of the world. Over the past five years, nearly 12,000 books have been distributed to children and adults. Even though the book drive focuses on children's books, we receive many books for seniors, which are also needed by some of the charities where the books were delivered.

The organizations receiving the books this year are: The Andre House, St. Vincent De Paul, Guadalupe Head Start Programs, St. Peter Mission on the Gila Indian Reservation, Boys and Girls Club in Guadalupe and the Upward Foundation, an agency serving children with special needs.

With your cooperation, we hope to continue this annual book drive that benefits many children and adults.
