Each week in October, The Crossroads Chronicle has been featuring book characters in the FERST Readers Contest and updating our readers on the total amount of money collected for books.
This week we are doing a shout out to all the characters we were not able to feature yet, and saying thank you to all the characters involved. See photos.
At the conclusion of the contest, Halloween night, the characters received over 3,823 votes raising $11,469 for local children under the age of five. Way to go all participants and donors!
If you live in Emanuel County and have a child under the age of five, please make sure to register your child for free award-winning books every month at “FERST Readers registration” found at https://ferstreaders.org/resources/register-a-child-sub/register-a-child.
If you would still like to contribute, it’s never too late. Visit https://ferst-readers-inc.networkforgood.com/projects/149522-donate-now and make sure to scroll down to Emanuel County when making your donation.
