Donate Books for Kids at Milwaukee-area cafes

Posted: March 27, 2019

Colectivo is hosting a children’s book drive to benefit the Next Door Foundation ‘s Book for Kids program across all Milwaukee-area cafes! As an award-winning early education provider, Next Door focuses on improving literacy and school readiness for children ages 0–5 in Milwaukee’s central city.

Research shows that the number of books available to a child may surpass all other variables in predicting their long-term success in school. Since the program started in 1990, Next Door’s Books for Kids has collected and distributed close to 2 million books to children.

You can support Next Door and their Books for Kids program by providing gently used/new books for children from birth to age 5. These books will be distributed for free to Next Door students and children across the city to help them build home libraries and enjoy story time with family. Collection bins will be available in our Milwaukee-area cafes April 1 through April 21, 2019. We’ll be unveiling the donated books on April 30th at Next Door’s Community Read with Me event!

Learn more about ways to support and volunteer opportunities at NextDoorMKE.org.
