Review for Board Of Religious Organizations, St. Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a retired elementary school librarian, I want to see as many books as possible in the hands of the 4,000 or more children, who receive toys from BRO. My volunteer job is to keep the children's books organized by reading level, look for opportunities to get free books, buy new books with donated money but at the least expense and convince family, friends, neighbors and church members to donate new and lightly used books for children infants to 10 years old. I get a great pleasure out of sharing these books with the parents, helping them pick out what their children will like. Usually each child receives one new book and one or two slightly used books.

I had the wonderful experience of seeing parents so excited to receive toys from BRO to give to their children for Christmas when they would not be able to buy them. They are so appreciative to get this opportunity and have fun choosing some of the toys.

I'm enjoying the friendships I've made with all the volunteers.

I'd buy more expensive toys, books, games and puzzles to give each child.
