The Goodman Community Center is once again putting together Thanksgiving Baskets for local families in need! Check outtheir website for a list of suggested items to contribute for those. They also have a list of the foods they usually need the most.

This October, Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group is partnering with independent bookstores including A Room of One's Own to host a nationwide food drive to raise awareness of childhood hunger. Inspired by Crenshaw, a new middle grade novel by Newbery Medalist Katherine Applegate, bookstores are teaming up with food pantries to collect items for children in need. For every store that signs up, Macmillan will donate $100* to No Kid Hungry, an organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger. Katherine Applegate will visit the store that collects the most nonperishable food items, and she’ll conduct Skype visits with three runners-up. We would love to make a strong showing in this contest for a great cause, so please consider bringing us non-perishable items for the drive!
