CMDS Sponsors Children’s Holiday Book Drive

CMDS is proudly sponsoring a holiday book drive for The Bridge of Books Foundation (BoB) now through December 31, 2015. As part of its core philosophy, CMDS is passionately committed to giving back to the community, especially during the holidays.

The Bridge of Books Foundation

BoB is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to provide on ongoing source of books to underprivileged and at-risk children throughout New Jersey to support literacy efforts and encourage a love of reading. The organization’s name comes from the belief that a book, like a bridge, can take a child to new places – today in his or her imagination and tomorrow through literacy skills!

We are looking to collect:

  • New and gently used holiday books
  • Books for children from birth through age eighteen reading levels
  • Special emphasis on pre-school books!
  • Functional books (if it makes sounds, it must work – if it has parts, it must be complete)
  • Parenting books

The Bridge of Books foundation does not accept adult books, textbooks, encyclopedias, coloring books, used work books or magazines.

A collection box will be placed at CMDS now through December 31, 2015.  Please support our efforts to bring the world and all its possibilities to New Jersey’s at-risk children through books and spread the joy of the holiday season.  Should you have any questions, please contact us at 732-706-5555.  To learn more about The Bridge of Books Foundation, please visit

We encourage you to take a picture of the books you are donating and share them with our donation hashtag: #CMDSforKIDS so we can spread the word about the collection and your contributions!
