LATEST NEWS!

WHERE DID PROCEEDS FROM THE NOVEMBER SALE GO?

  

books to Benefit, a local non-profit that holds semi-annual book sales to raise money for local literacy programs, announced gifts of $7,000 to STAR Adult Literacy and $2,000 to YouthBuild McLean County, in addition to funding two $500 scholarships for nontraditional students at Heartland Community College.

"Thanks to the generous support of our customers," Books to Benefit President Michelle Klatt said, "our November 2019 sale was very successful, allowing us once again to increase our gift to STAR." Shelia Diaz of STAR added her thanks, stating, "The support of Books to Benefit and their customers is amazing; they help us to meet the wide variety of learning needs of our students. This gift gives us the means to provide material targeted to the specific educational needs and goals of our adult learners."

"Being able to offer two scholarships at Heartland Community College," Klatt said, "is pretty exciting. Textbooks are expensive, and our scholarships are awarded specifically to help a nontraditional student meet those costs. These scholarships are funded through our bake sale, so a special 'Thank you’ to all the bakers and hungry customers who made this possible!"
