CORA is more than just a food pantry, it is a place where the community comes together to help those most vulnerable and provide a space of support. This summer, CORA is excited to announce a new partnership with Book Harvest through their Community Book Bank Program.
The goal of our Community Book Bank is to provide ready access to books for children and families in communities that have historically lacked books for their children. The Book Harvest aspires to transform book deserts throughout our community into book-rich environments. Each month Book Harvest will stock CORA’s Children’s Area with books that children can take home. Currently there more than 50 Community Book Banks locations throughout the greater Triangle.
“CORA is so appreciative of this new partnership with Book Harvest providing books to children who visit the pantry,” shared Hankins. “We strive to provide our clients an atmosphere of empathy, support, and community and the children’s area is critical to achieving this by giving our youngest visitors a place to access books that they might not have otherwise.”
