Help us make sure local children keep reading throughout the summer! Did you know VEAP’s Food Pantry is also home to a small bookshelf for young ones visiting our pantry? During the pandemic, VEAP’s volunteers have distributed reading materials to children whose parents are receiving food from our drive-through. But our book supply is now running low!
We’re now looking for new or gently-used children’s books (all age levels) to pass along to kids in our community. As many different families utilize our services, please refrain from donating faith-based books. Books in English and Spanish are especially welcome!
To drop off reading items, please visit Door 4 behind our building (Food Donation drop-off) anytime Monday – Friday from 8:30 – 4:30 p.m. If you’d like to purchase online and mail right to VEAP, please send to 9600 Aldrich Avenue South, Bloomington MN 55420.
Thanks for supporting little ones in Bloomington, Richfield, Edina and South Minneapolis!
