Book Club Donates to Rockford Rescue Mission
On Oct. 5th, Book Club discussed the book Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate. In the book, the main character, Jackson, is about to be homeless again. His father is sick and his mother has lost her job due to cut backs. Through the help of his imaginary friend, Crenshaw, Jackson learns to cope with the uncertainty of his future. During their garage sale, they are helped by kind strangers. The club wanted to help the homeless also.
Book Club members brought in gently used items, from their room at home. These items were then donated to the Rockford Rescue Mission for homeless and needy families.
