Remember Summer Book Bag for all your gift-giving occasions!
Make a contribution to Summer Book Bag in honor of someone else! We have created cards that you can send that will make your gift personal and unique and that will tell someone you have made a contribution in their honor. These are available in Holiday and Beach themes, in two formats to download:
- E-Cards: Images (.png files) to email or to post on social media.
- Cards: PDF documents that you can print at home, fold into a card, write your own message (if you like), then mail in a standard card envelope, add to a gift basket, or put under the tree.
We work on this project all year long. June 1 is our cut-off date for when we use what we’ve collected so far to support the current year’s project. Any funds not used are carried over. This gets books into the kids’ hands before they leave school for the summer. Here’s how that works:
- Contributions received between June 2, 2021 through June 1, 2022 will be used to support Summer Book Bag 2022.
- Contributions received between June 2, 2022 through June 1, 2023 will be used to support Summer Book Bag 2023.
- And so on …
