Investing in Children Through Books

Posted by Laura Mueller on

For the month of April, there is an easy way for you and your family to invest in children across Colorado Springs. 

How can I invest in Children in our City?

Simply drop off new or gently used children's books into one of the donation boxes. Books should be geared for children from birth to 5th grade. 

28 local businesses, including First Pres, are coming alongside Pikes Peak United Way and EPIC (Executives Partnering to Invest in Children) to collect books that will then be used at local elementary schools, libraries, doctor's offices and childcare centers. 

Where can I find boxes?
  • On the 3rd floor outside the elevator on Sundays
  • On the 2nd floor near First Pres Preschool rooms on weekdays
  • In the Worship Center during MOPS on Thursdays

*Can't find a box? Bring your donations to the Mission Engagement office on the 1st floor across from the Executive Suite.
