New and gently used books needed!
Nicholson is conducting a book
drive to support MUST Ministries’ summer lunch program.
Thousands of children in Cobb County receive lunch
from MUST each weekday during the summer.
In addition, the lunch program also helps to promote
literacy by giving each child a book on Fridays.
How can you help?
Please consider donating books that your
children no longer read.
Books can be dropped off during summer office hours
in the collection box in the lobby.
