We are partnering with the Junior Savers Club® to support Bernie’s Book Bank in their mission this year to increase book ownership among infants, toddlers, and school-age children throughout Chicagoland.
Since 2009, Bernie’s Book Bank has distributed nearly 1.5 million books to children in need in and around Chicago. With the help of local organizations, including Wintrust, Bernie’s Book Bank hopes to collect 100,000 books in 2013. Let’s work together to help Bernie’s reach and even exceed that goal to put books in the hands of our children!
To support the cause, please bring your new or gently used children’s books to State Bank of the Lakes from Sunday, June 16th through Friday, August 16th, 2013. If you are interested in becoming a Junior Savers member, stop by any bank location for more information. Non-Junior Savers members are eligible to donate books.
