This week marks the last week of book distributions for the 2014-2015 school year and we're very pleased to announce that Books for Bay was able to provide over 2,600 books to 866 Bay County kids!
We could not have done this without the help of our wonderful volunteers and our very generous community! We're so grateful for the help and support of individuals and organizations like Panama City Starbucks, WAY-FM, Bellisimo Hair Salon, Dawn Capes and the Bay District Schools Nelson Building, Ashli Rouw, Clovis Greiner, Angie Roberts and Head Shed Salon and Spray Tan, The Democratic Women's Club of Bay County, and so many more!
You guys have made all of this possible! Our growth and the response from the community has truly blown away all expectations we had when we launched Books for Bay in late 2014.
We will be working hard all summer long and have huge things planned for the 2014-2015 school year.
We have some exciting programs and partnerships on the horizon that should allow us to double or even triple the number of books we were able to provide during this school year.
Stay tuned and keep readin'!
