With everything going on with COVID-19 we wanted to highlight helpful resources in the area!
Salina Area United Way Organizes Children’s Book Drive
The Salina Area United Way is hosting a children’s book drive June 1 – 12. Drop off new and gently used children’s books (birth through high school reading levels) at 210 E. Walnut, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Salina Area United Way is partnering with the USD 305 Summer Meal Service Program for the book distribution. After kids pick up their free Grab-and-Go lunch, their next stop can be for a free book. United Way staff will display books, and children, remaining in the vehicle, will read the book’s title or point to make their selection. Free book distribution days and locations will be determined following the book drive June 1 – 12. For participants health and safety, SAUW will follow the CDC guidance for COVID-19. “We ask that you place books in a clean box or bag for drop off. There will be a book donation table just inside the door at 210 E. Walnut, Suite 100,” said Gutierrez. “Drop off times are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.,” Gutierrez added. All new and gently used books will set untouched for 72 hours before cleaning and sanitizing. For more information about Salina Area United Way, visit www.unitedwaysalina.org.
