Give the Gift of Reading


Give the Gift of Reading this year! Calvert Collaborative for Children and Youth in conjunction with the United Way of Calvert County is sponsoring a Tree of Angels Book Drive again this year. Collection bins will be placed at the locations listed on the flyer beginning tomorrow, November 15th. Currently there are 450+ children/230+ families who will be receiving Tree of Angels gifts next month and we would like to see that each child receives at least two new (or very, very gently used) books this year. We are collecting books for all ages (infant, preschool, elementary, middle and high school). Last year, we collected 800+ books. This year we are stretching our goal to 1000+ books. Please help us achieve our goal! Building a home library is important for all families.

If you will not have a chance to purchase a book/books, we now have a new option to support our book drive. Text 41444 and enter angelbooks to donate online. We will use the donated money to purchase children’s books for you!

Thank you for your support!
