Children’s Book Drive to Benefit Local Nonprofits November 7-December 19

In celebration of the fifth anniversary of opening their doors, Rocklin-based Public Relations and Marketing firm, Elevate Public Relations and Marketing, has organized a children’s book drive to benefit two local Placer County non-profits: KidsFirst and Lighthouse Counseling and Family Resource Center. 

The firm has partnered with more than two dozen local businesses in Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln and Auburn to serve as book collection sites. 

Mary Towne, Elevate Public Relations & Marketing’s founder hopes to supply these family-focused organizations with enough children’s books to fully stock their on-site libraries, and to supply each family who accesses their programs with a book to take home for their child.

“Each member of the Elevate PR & Marketing has a heart for serving the non-profit community. From volunteering at events to providing pro-bono services, serving non-profits is part of who we are and what we do every day,” commented Towne.

“This book drive is an extension of our passion to serve, and a fun way to make a positive impact in the lives of vulnerable children and families in our community,” she added.

The following is a partial list of local businesses that will house book collection boxes beginning on November 7 and running through December 19.  The community is asked to visit any of these businesses to drop off new or gently used children’s books which will be collected and distributed via the programs at KidsFirst and Lighthouse.
