Bloomington’s Book Fair Fundraiser
For 32 years, Monroe County Chapter of the American Red Cross in Bloomington, Indiana has been hosting an Annual Book Fair to raise funds for local chapter to help respond to disaster, support local military families, and provide CPR and first-aid classes. Throughout the year, people in the area donate on average 100,000 books, as well as CDs, DVDs, and games, as well as collectables such as art and baseball cards to sell at the event.
This past year, the Bloomington North High School’s Red Cross Club, along with Indiana University’s Red Cross Club, helped to work at their local chapter’s event in early October, though setting up, cashiering, working customer service, and tearing down the event. The event was a huge success, as both these clubs helped to raise $73,100 for the Monroe County Chapter. Congratulations on having such a successful event, and keep up the great work!
