ROUND UP FOR READING Supports Local Families and the GSC

The Great Start Collaborative was so excited to be the recipient of November's Round Up For Reading Program. A grand total of $1284.53 was raised. We are looking forward to getting books into the hands of local dads, Spanish-speaking families, young parents and urban Native American families. Thank you to Bookbug/this is a bookstore.
