Every December, W&CF hosts a book drive in-store to get books into the hands of young people within our community. This year, while we cannot welcome you into the store to participate in this annual tradition, we are hosting an online gift card drive in collaboration with our partner, BooksFirst. We will be raising funds until December 21st, 2020, after which time you can support BooksFirst directly!
BooksFirst is run by Illinois families who use their own homes, time, and resources to collect books for Chicago Public Schools with 15% or more kids experiencing homelessness and no libraries/library equivalents. Support CPS students this year by donating to the BooksFirst gift card at W&CF. The gift card will be used to purchase age appropriate books with a wide variety of perspectives that are representative of CPS student populations.
