To the Editor:
The Food for the Mind Project leaders would like to take this opportunity to recognize individuals, schools, organizations, businesses and churches that have more than generously donated used and new books and money to help children who visit area food pantries.
With the donations, the children have available to them books to read and own. It is impossible to list all the donors for fear of leaving someone out.
The food pantries that support the Food for the Mind project are Antigo (two pantries), Boulder Junction, Crandon (two pantries), Lakeland (serves four communities), Mercer, Rhinelander, Three Lakes, Tomahawk, and Townsend.
We would like to express our gratitude to you for helping the children in your area have access to books. Research has shown that pre-school children that have books in their homes become better learners in school.
Many people have not only donated money and books but much energy and time to make this a wonderful and successful ongoing project.
