This is the season for giving, and making a person feel appreciated and loved.  This week we have the opportunity to do just that for 100 children. 

Emmaus Rotary has a collection of children's books that we will pull 100 books from to be donated to the Cops And Kids Reading Program.  At this meeting each Rotarian in attendance will be given a few books and specially printed Rotary bookmarks (courtesy of Michael Irwin, Vinyl Press Signs and Graphics). We will write words of encouragement to the Children of Roosevelt Elementary School in Allentown. On December 17th Cops and Kids will be holding a holiday book giving event at which First Responders and Santa will hand out books to students. For many of these kids this donated book will be their only Christmas gift.  The gift of reading can change lives.

Please be sure to attend and if you have any books you'd like to contribute for readers ages 5-11, please bring them along! Our 100 books will be complied with donations coming from other service organizations and the community.
