Book ‘Em was thrilled to participate in their 3rd “Santa in the Park,” event which is an annual outreach project of the Bibb Sheriff’s Office. Each year the Sheriff’s Office selects a public park to be the site of a pre-Christmas gift-giving event for children who might not otherwise receive any gifts on Christmas day. Every child who attends this annual event receives a brand-new toy or bicycle. Book ‘Em is also there to give at least one brand-new book to each child. From 2015-2017 Book ‘Em has given close to 1,000 books to children who attend Santa in the Park. This year’s event was held at the Buck Melton Community Center on Anthony Road.
We thank the Bibb Sheriff’s Office for realizing the importance of community outreach and for hosting events such as this one and for inviting us to be a part of this tradition. We look forward to expanding our reach into the community through our partnership with the Sheriff’s Office in 2018 and by working with other local non-profits to improve the lives and futures of children in Macon-Bibb County.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2018!
