Tennessee road trip yields magazines for kids and teens – and a new friend

By John Mennell

On the way back home from the Nashville Country Living Fair, I traveled near enough to a magazine recycler to make a personal pick-up. At its core, our global literacy project is about making connections between people who love to read their favorite magazines and then share them with new readers. This beautiful collection from Michele will go to children and teens via our food pantry and shelter newsstands. Michele explained her own fond memories of reading magazines like these as a child and teen, and how pleased she is to share them with others. Our project is made possible by these simple acts of kindness that can change the life of another young reader forever. Thank you Michele for your generous support. Reading is where it all begins.
