New Chapter of Literacy and Care: Appetite For Reading Shelf Arrives at SVDP Mission of Bristol

In a collaborative effort between DK Movement Cares, United Way of West Central Connecticut and Making Bristol Better has proudly installed their second "Appetite For Reading Library" at St. Vincent DePaul Mission of Bristol. DK Movement Cares donated the Little Free Library to bring the enjoyment of reading to everyone within the Bristol community.

Beyond the pages of engaging stories and enlightening knowledge, this shelf also extends warmth during chilly days, offering hats and gloves to children in need. Positioned to serve families using the shelter and local residents, the bookshelf is a beacon of generosity and educational opportunity in the heart of the neighborhood.
