On March 2, 2020, for Read Across America Day, Blue Star Families volunteers, Kelly Watson and Melissa Anderson, delivered 30 Blue Star Books to the Williams Early Childhood Center library.
According to the Blue Star Families 2019 Military Family Lifestyle Survey, dependent children’s education is a top five issue for military families.
“The WECC library grows by donations only, so we’re appreciative to do our part to ensure our young military children have the resources they need. Thanks to Blue Star Families partners, we’re able to help young military readers.” says Tai Kimes, Blue Star Families Chapter Director of Missouri.
Blue Star Books is a signature program fostering a love of reading amongst military children and connecting military families to their communities through chapter and tentpole events.
