Our attendee-volunteers came through in spades with both donations and volunteered time. Attendees prepared 715 donated books for Bernie's Book Bank. These books will be distributed to children in the greater Chicago area who otherwise have limited access to reading materials. Bernie's Book Bank delivers at least 12 books per year to each of the children it works with, and the organization has distributed more than 2.6 million books since 2009. ...
