"Give a Child a New Book Day" Donations Increase

Posted: Updated:

"Give a Child a New Book Day" organizers announced an increase in this year's totals.

The group collected 4,000 books this year.

The initiative is organized by Red Door Marketing Agency, USM Friends of University Libraries, Favre-4-Hope Foundation and the Salvation Army.

Every book donated went to a child who qualified for the "Angel Tree" program in Forrest, Lamar, Jackson and Harrision Counties.

Chair Sarah Mangrum said each year they are able to reach more and more children and she hopes the program continues to grow.
