For the second year, Books, Brushes & Bands for Education – organized and led by Society Board Governor Michelle Golden – has partnered with First Midwest Bank and the Hammond Urban Enterprise Association to hold its annual Book Brigade: A Call to Action. Red wagons were parked inside all 17 bank branches in NWI to collect books.
During September, dozens of adult and youth volunteers distributed 5000 books to neighborhood children. Their support included a birthday party to celebrate Books, Brushes & Bands for Education’s 14th birthday. Congratulations to Michelle and this amazing Team for this great community service!
