In honor of MLK Day and National Charity League’s National Day of Service, Jan. 16, the National Charity League Northwest Arkansas Chapter asked the community to donate new or gently used books, with a focus on those that celebrate diversity, equity and inclusion. The community answered the call, and an impressive 2,950 books were received and boxed by 40 NCL mothers and daughters working to make this event a success. The mothers and daughters of the NCL Northwest Arkansas Chapter are thrilled to kick off February’s Black History Month celebration with the donation of these 2,950 books. Books will now be donated to The Children’s Safety Center of Washington County, Children’s Advocacy Center of Benton County, NWA Children’s Shelter, Women’s Correctional Facility, Fayetteville Affiliate of Arkansas Community Foundation’s Book Mobile, as well as the following Springdale district schools: Shaw Elementary, J.O. Kelley Middle School, Walker Elementary, Parson Hills Elementary, Tyson Elementary, Don Tyson School of Innovation, and their Tree House Pantry. (Courtesy Photos)
