Dear friends:

Your generous donation to the Metro East Literacy Project (MELP) helped us to give away over 10,000 books to families in the East St. Louis, Il area. During a drive-up food, toy, clothing and book giveaway on Saturday, December 18, 2021, MELP gave 417 families a bag of 25 books for adults and children. Our volunteers worked hard for most of 2021 to make this book giveaway happen. We plan to reach more communities in 2022. 

Thank you so much for supporting the Metro East Literacy Project.
