Thank you for helping us buy enough books for all of the pre-K children served by Blessings in a Backpack Frederick! Now, we need your help to send a new book home for the summer with our kindergartners and first graders – by May 12! The more kids read, the better readers they become!

  • Buy books from the the Book List through the Curious Iguana website or store on N. Market St., and they will deliver them to us. Click here.
  • Visit the Literacy Council’s donation page and designate Book Drive in “Purpose of Donation.” They will purchase and deliver your books to us. Click here.
  • Purchase books from the Book List through another retailer and drop them off at Blessings in a Backpack (bins on back porch) or the Literacy Council of Frederick County.
