The UPS Store donates books for literacy program
Thanks to the generosity of the Wausau community, The UPS Store located at 4404 Rib Mountain Dr., Wausau, raised funds for the Toys for Tots Literacy Program. One-hundred percent of the proceeds donated locally benefit children in Wausau and the surrounding communities.
Throughout November and December 2017, The UPS Store offered customers the opportunity to purchase Toys for Tots Literacy Program donation cards. Every donation helps the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation buy a book for a deserving child.
“The community’s participation in the Toys for Tots Literacy Program was a key component to the success of this promotion,” said The UPS Store franchisee Donna Brandenburg. “This program provides us the unique opportunity to work with a nationally-recognized organization yet make an impact in our community, which is only possible because of thoughtful contributions from the people in Wausau area.”
This is the second year that The UPS Store in Rib Mountain donated books to The Boys and Girls Club of the Wausau Area, specifically the Franklin Elementary School Site. Books were handled out to each family at a Family Night on April 19. The remaining books will be used at the site for kids to read during academic enrichment time before and after school.
The center will continue additional fundraising activities throughout the year, including a coin box program for customers to donate their spare change.
The UPS Store network is the exclusive sponsor of the Toys for Tots Literacy Program. Since launching the program in 2008, it has raised more than $4 million to help deliver nearly 40 million books to less-fortunate children across the country.
