(Somerville, MA) In honor of Children’s Book Month, Naveo Credit Union is launching a book drive during the month of April at both its branches to benefit the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless, based in Lynn, MA. Over the past six years, Naveo has collected over 1,600 books. This year, Naveo’s goal is to collect 300 books.
Each year, Naveo Credit Union participates in the annual, statewide book drive spearheaded by the Massachusetts division of the Cooperative Credit Union Association. The Association collaborates with the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless to distribute the collected books to local non-profits, low-income daycares, schools and shelters in Somerville, Cambridge and the surrounding communities.
Donation bins will be available at both branches though April 30. Naveo is accepting both new and gently used children’s book for all ages.
