St. Mark’s goal is 100 books for students

St. Mark’s is hosting a book drive for Wake Up and Read 2019.
  Through Feb. 15, Wake Up and Read is collecting new and gently-used books to be distributed to 13 of Wake County’s lowest-performing schools, including St. Mark’s partner school, Wilburn Elementary. St. Mark’s hopes to collect 100 books.
  A box for the books will be in the St. Mark’s Concourse through Feb. 10.
  If you prefer to donate money, you can make a check payable to St. Mark’s with “Book Drive” in the memo line. Place your tax-deductible check in the collection plate on Sunday, and we will purchase the books.
  Quail Ridge Books offers a 20 percent discount on books purchased for this initiative and left at their site.
  Thank you for your kind consideration of this request.
