Being the son and grandson of teachers...and the father of a future teacher, I know how important reading is. That's why I wanted to give you a heads up about this event on Friday. Reading is a fundamental life skill but not every child has access to the books they need. You can help make a difference by joining TV6 for the Cops ‘N Kids Community book drive.
TV6 will host the book drive on Friday, May 21 from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. You can pull up to the TV6 studios at 805 Brady Street, drop off a book or monetary donation and then exit onto Perry Street. The donations will go to area children and families in need.
TMBC at the Lincoln Center is addressing the immediate need of the youth in the community. They’re doing this with the Cops ‘N Kids mission.
“Cops ‘N Kids mission is to promote positive interaction with law enforcement at the same time encouraging literacy,” Tracy Singelton with the Lincoln Center said. “There is a direct link to poverty and crime, and subsequently literacy. The Lincoln Center is proud to partner with the Davenport Police Department and work together to promote positive youth development.”
