Friday, December 20th
Give Me Five! collaborated with two wonderful volunteers from the Elgin YWCA to bring story time to children as their families were doing laundry or waiting for the raffle. The children made jingle bell bracelets, sang Christmas Carols, listened to Christmas stories and colored wintry pictures. EPEL and SCARCE donated books for the children to take home in an official Give Me Five! bag!
