Every student at the Salt Lake Community Shelter's "School with No Name" will receive a new book and book bag, courtesy of The King's English Book Shop and Earthly Matters Inc.
"Valentine's Day is a time for loving and caring. This is our way of showing it," said Charlotte Romney Howe of Earthly Matters, who is providing her company's mesh tote bags, called ReBags, for the occasion. "It's a great opportunity to get together and send a real, tangible valentine.""We feel strongly that every child should have a book of his own," said Barbara Hoagland of King's English, who is donating age-appropriate reading and picture books to the students. "What could be a better time of year to give a child a book to love?"
The women will deliver the books and bags to students at the shelter school's Valentine's Day party.
