CHILDREN’S BOOK DRIVE GATHERS MOMENTUM WITH LOCAL BUSINESS SUPPORT
Alameda — A drive to collect children’s books for area day care centers that started as a month-long effort last November has now been expanded to a full-time project due to strong support from local businesses, says People Care 4 Day Care’s Executive Director, Ralph Zig Tyko.

People Care 4 Day Care, Inc. (PC4DC) is an Alameda-based charitable organization whose goal of making sure our kids are school-ready involves many projects, including the book drive.

Tyko says, “We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of local business people, like Kevin Nelson of Kevin Patrick Books (photo), as well as so many anonymous donors who share our interest in passing along a love of reading to children at this impressionable age. We encourage all area residents to join with us in this effort – both with a contribution of books that have delighted their families as well as their volunteer time to read to children.”

Books suitable for day care-aged children can be dropped off Tuesday through Saturday at Shear Delight, 1505 Park Street, Alameda. Those interested in volunteering to read to children should call Tyko at (510) 827-5837

PC4DC has an extensive lineup of projects throughout the year, and runs “Klunkers 4 Kids,” a vehicle donation program. Details on these programs and other initiatives are available on the PC4DC Web site: http://pc4dc.org
