Already it is here…August and back to school time! As new school supplies are being bought for the new year and our children get ready for another exciting chapter in their lives, some of our babies once again won’t be going. As we sit and wonder what they would have been like getting a year older, we like to set aside this time to honor and remember all our families and their babies, while at the same time give back to area schools.
This year, I am proud to honor Jennifer McElroy, her husband Jeff, and their family by donating books to her Fourth Grade Classroom at Crossings Christian School. Jennifer is a volunteer who helps our organization by calling on new moms and introducing them to Kids Joining Eternity. Jennifer’s husband, Jeff, is also an active member of our Board. Their sweet boy, Gabriel Jonathan McElroy, will forever be remembered and we are so happy to honor him by donating 70 books to Jennifer’s classroom.
If you would like a book to be donated to the chosen schools in your baby(ies) name(s), all you have to do is email the child’s name to: [email protected] and a book will be donated in his/her memory Free of charge. We will place a small label on the inside cover of the book stating the book was donated in memory of your baby(ies) name(s). More than one book can be donated so feel free to share this with family and friends.
Another option besides emailing us is to complete the form below:
We are honored to keep paying it forward.
We will never forget.
*If you never named your baby, can use Baby and then your last name: Ex) Baby Smith or Smith babies if you lost more than one
**Grandparents, relatives and/or friends can also donate a book in the same child’s name(s)
