In support of UMOM Day Centers, a leading provider of emergency shelter, supportive services, and housing programs for families experiencing homelessness, Tempe-based marketing and consulting agency, Highnoon, is excited to announce a book drive to help the children served by UMOM.
Throughout the month of June, the book drive will accept new and gently used books, culminating in a delivery event to UMOM, as allowed by CDC guidance. UMOM is requesting that donors seek out books for children and teenagers that inspire through hope and representation and have POC protagonists with uplifting messages or a positive ending.
â€œBook donations are always welcome and needed here,â€ said UMOM New Day Centers CEO, Jackson Fonder. â€œSome of the children staying at our family emergency shelter are avid readers and the books are incredibly popular. Homelessness is a tough experience for families â€“ especially kids â€“ and reading is a positive and educational diversion for them.â€
Highnoon will collect all books at their Tempe headquarters, package them and deliver them directly to UMOMâ€™s team. In addition to contributing preowned books, donors are welcome to select new books from UMOMâ€™s wishlist or Amazonâ€™s top selling childrenâ€™s book list and send to Highnoon as well.
â€œAt Highnoon, giving back to the community is a guiding pillar of our company. We encourage involvement in the community both during, and outside of, work hours,â€ says Scott Kaufmann, Managing Partner at Highnoon. â€œSo, what better way to give back than to partner with UMOM and inspire the local youth through the power of books?â€
