The Giving Tree begins in November

Benefit/Fundraiser

Happening in both our Fairhaven & Lynden stores. It is that time of year when the collaboration among book lovers, Village Books, and several community organizations provides the gift of reading to local children and families through Village Books’ Giving Tree. For the past 20 years we've provided books for thousands of kids who would not otherwise have received them. Last year alone, because of your generosity, we gave books to almost 1300 children through eight local organizations. How can you help? Choose an angel ornament from the tree in the store and purchase a book for a recipient. You will be offered a 20% discount for your Angel book purchase. The books will be distributed to kids, through community organizations, in the weeks before Christmas. Whether you pick up one angel this year, or ten angels, you can appreciate that the children of our community will enjoy a happier holiday season because of your gift. Here is a list of organizations to which we distribute books: Lydia Place. Opportunity Council. Whatcom Center for Early Learning. Blue Skies for Children. Nurse/Family Partnership Program. NW Youth Services. Interfaith Coalition. DVSAS. The official kick-off of the program will be at our pre-holiday open houses which happen on November 11 in Lynden and Fairhaven.
