Day 12 Book Drive

 For our final day of 12 Days of Giving we delivered over 300 books to UMOM, a family homeless shelter in Phoenix.  As a room mom for each of the kids I help plan their holiday parties.  For Karlie and Kaitlin's parties I had one of the rotations be for each child to bring a new or gently used to book to wrap and donate.
The response was incredible with each class being able to wrap 2-5 books per student!  Many really beautiful books were donated.
 With all of third grade and half of fifth grade bringing in books, we ended up with over 300 books!  Luckily My Mom, Dad and RJ were here and able to help us load all the books after the parties on Friday.
On Saturday we took the books to UMOM.  They were very appreciative of our donations.  That's a wrap for this year's 12 Days of Giving. :)
