Bernie’s Book Bank is a local non-profit. It’s a great organization that helps put books into the hands of underprivileged kids. They mostly work with a lot of Chicago Public Schools, Waukegan, Lake Zion, and other areas where there is not a lot of money. They enable kids to pick up books, learn at an earlier age, and really work on their literacy.
Education solves everything. In order for any family to get out of poverty, it’s going to come down to education and that starts with learning how to read. Families and young adults will never be able to come out of poverty if they don’t have a proper education and if they’re not able to self-educate themselves through reading skills and literacy, it’s just not going to happen.
So that’s why this is close to our hearts because they are such a helpful organization actually making a difference in our local Chicagoland community.
The staff that works there is awesome! Their communication is great and they respond right away. Their program is so successful that they are expanding into other areas and states creating partnerships with public schools and universities to grow their mission.
We really like their facility and decided to help out by volunteering our time along with some of our painters. We’re also going to rent out a space inside their facility to have a meeting with all our painters which is going to be a straight donation to support their cause.
Bernie’s Book Bank puts books into the hands of underprivileged kids.
Two out of three children lack books and they recognize that kids who grow up in underprivileged neighborhoods have an average of 1 to 2 books in the house that they read by the time they are 18 years old.
Their whole goal is to go into these neighborhoods and donate educational books to make sure that they’re getting up to speed with the rest of their peers in the same age group.
They’re empowering Chicagoland children by helping kids build their very own personal home libraries.
Bernie’s Book Bank is based out of Lake Bluff and their website is https://www.berniesbookbank.org/
