Non-profit in Horry County hands out books to kids in need

Grand Strand
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – Team First Book-Horry County is a nonprofit organization with a simple mission: to provide new books to children in need in our area. Since 1998, the group has given more than 91,413 books to children in the Grand Strand area. Donations are tax-deductible.
 
As one of First Book’s community-based volunteer Advisory Teams (the only one in South Carolina),
they are responsible for raising money and awarding grants to local programs that have a literacy
component. Grant recipients use the grant money to select and purchase new books at discounted
rates to distribute to disadvantaged children for their personal libraries.
 
The organization is looking for new board members and monetary donations.  The group would like organizations that would benefit from a grant from our organization to apply by October 19, 2018.
