If you have visited Michael’s over the past few months, it is likely the cashier asked you if you’d like to donate $1.00 to purchase a book for children at AIM. Over $1,000 came in, resulting in a massive donation on March 17, 2016, of 1,020 books to jump start the new WACS Children’s Literacy Library. Housed in the WACS Cottage on the AIM campus, this library will allow the children of WACS participants to have access to books like The Secret Garden and Black Beauty – books they may not otherwise own. This incredible donation will encourage a love of reading and provide special time between mother and child as they explore the books together. Thank you to everyone who donated and to Michael’s for this generous gift!
