Live with Purpose- March Bookmarks

Join JVC by making Bookmarks for local students this month! Fun bookmarks will be donated with books to encourage literacy in our community.

Who are we helping? Bookmarks will be donated to Millbrook Elementary School students at their annual free book fair. Each student is given multiple books to take home to their families and bookmarks to go with them. Students in the past have loved our homemade bookmarks as it truly makes reading fun!

  • Foam Bookmarks
