Even though I live in the Northshore area, I consider the families who grow and help harvest the fruit that we purchase in our Puget Sound grocery stores to be a part of my community. I am aware of political concerns for the migrant way of life, but do not have the knowledge to determine policy.
In addition to giving the children something fun to do, the books will help them learn academically, as well as knowing that I consider them to be a part of my community and that I and other contributors care for them and their well-being.
I have placed a labeled box in the entry way office of First Lutheran Church of Bothell, 10207 NE 183rd (just east of Mills Music), and in the main office of Leota Junior High School to collect donations of books (English or Spanish), coloring books, crayons, and markers. First Lutheran Church office hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thank you for helping me with this project.
