11 Alive SURPRISED Remington and Ashley at school on March 24th, 2014, for their Random Acts of Kindness series. The 11 Alive Team and News Anchor, Karyn Greer, wanted to recognize the compassion and generosity of the C4G members, who, in lieu of presents for their 13th birthday, asked their guests to bring donations of cash and books. Their generous friends donated $1,125 and 241 books!
The Building By Books Drive is to collect new and gently used books preschool through 8th grade. The books will be used to implement a Giving Library, where children can borrow or take a book. Several hundred books will be donated to the three Title 1 schools in Forsyth County and to veteran families. Some of the books will be kept for their summer reading program called “Read Across Forsyth” inspired by Georgia’s First Lady Sandra Deal’s initiative called “Read Across Georgia”. C4G appreciates all the support from C4G members, friends, parents, teachers, principals and our community. It really does take a village!
