MODESTO — The Parent Resource Center in Modesto is accepting donations of new childrens books, to give the gift of literacy for Christmas.
The books will go to children whose parents are receiving services from PRC, and the goal is to collect 400.
New books can be dropped off weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the PRC office, 811 Fifth St.
Through educational, mentoring and supportive services at two locations, PRC builds stronger, healthy families to prevent child abuse and neglect.
The nonprofit PRC has served the Modesto area for more than 20 years.
The deadline to donate books is Dec. 6. For more information, call (209) 549-8193 or go to www.prcfamilies.org.
