A small deviation from our normal reporting... but this is important.
This coming Friday the Red Sox wives will be collecting children's book at every gate entrance to Fenway.
The gates open at 1740 hours, or 5:40 PM, and the wives will have tables setup so look for them and will be taking books until the 2nd inning of the game against the Toronto Blue Jays. This will benefit the Room to Grow, the non-profit organization which seeks to enrich the lives of babies born into poverty throughout their critical first three years of development.
They are looking for books in the 0 - 3 years old range, with a special need for board books in both Spanish and English.
Even if you don't have kids, you might know someone who does with an extra book or two laying around. Take the time, make the effort, donate a book or two. There is nothing better than watching the face of a baby or child as they listen to someone reading a story to them. Don't let the price of a book become the barrier, give them one for free.
Thanks for your attention, now we send you back to our regular programming...
