Over the next week, volunteers are helping ensure Greater Mankato Area United Way can deliver books to children through its Books for Kids program.

The Books for Kids program normally ships free Capstone books to children in the four-county region every other month. The program’s recent mailings have been delayed due to COVID.

Volunteers will be at the Mayo Clinic Health System Event Center Grand Hall this Thursday and Wednesday/Thursday next week to prepare mailings with children’s remaining 2020 books.
