Want to help inspire a child to read? On Sunday, July 20, the Mud Hens and the Toledo Lucas County Public Library will host a book drive at Fifth Third Field. Fans coming to the game that day are encouraged to bring new or lightly used children’s books, with donations to benefit the Books 4 Buddies program.
Founded in 2012 by Toledo native L. Toure McCord, the mission of the Books 4 Buddies program is to enhance literacy for boys and young men and building leaders one book at a time. Donated books will be given to disadvantaged youth, but particularly to encourage and inspire young boys to read.
The Mud Hens take on Louisville at 6 p.m. on Sunday, July 20. Gates opening at 4:30 p.m. Call 419-725-4367 for tickets or order online.
