Old Firehouse Books to Host “fill the tower” Food Drive for the Larimer County Food Bank!
Help Old Firehouse Books “fill the tower” with food for the Larimer County Food Bank! Old Firehouse Books in collaborating with author Katherine Applegate is hosting a food drive for the month of October to help end childhood hunger. The bookstore with the most food raised will receive a special visit from Applegate.
Old Firehouse Books is also hosting a bookmark design contest! Children are invited to draw their imaginary friend on a special blank bookmark and submit it with an item of non-perishable food. Winner(s) of the contest will have their drawing printed and also win a prize.
Applegate’s book Crenshaw is about a boy named Jackson whose family has hit hard times, where food is scarce and rent is behind. Jackson thinks he is far too old for an imaginary friend until his imaginary friend, Crenshaw, returns to help him cope with rough times. Katherine Applegate is the author of many popular children’s chapterbooks including The One and Only Ivan and the Animorphs series.
