MLK Day Snack Drive

MLK Day 2021 Operation D.R.E.A.M.  (Dedicated Readers Excel And Motivate)
Project begins January 18, 2021 and ends February 19, 2021.


In observance of MLK Day and wishing to bring forth Dr. Martin Luther King’s message of freedom, equality, justice and love, CVNL is coordinating a community service project with a goal of giving 500 North Bay children and youth the gift of books to nourish their minds and the gift of snacks to nourish their bodies.

Each bag of gifts will contain approximately $25 worth of books and $10 worth of snacks.
How many gift bags can you help to make?


We are requesting your support by donating healthy, pre-packaged, non-perishable snacks or a gift certificate to purchase such items. Will you help?
