Support Literacy Day benefiting Lowrance Middle School
On Tuesday, June 6, shop in-store or online to support Lowrance Middle School and support their initiative for more students to have access to books at home.
We will donate 10% of the day's sales as book credit so they can purchase books for their program and media center.
