Shop Your Cause Charity Spotlight: Bernie’s Book Bank

Posted by on 12:00 pm in Uncategorized | 0 comments

As we are so grateful for the dedication of literally thousands of volunteers who engage with Bernie’s Book Bank throughout the year, it is very difficult to highlight just one, so we will highlight two. Bernie’s Book Bank would like to honor Suzanne Mahoney and her daughter Claire Mahoney. Throughout the past year, Suzanne and Claire have invested countless hours together within our Processing Center and out at various large book distributions within the communities we serve. In addition, Suzanne is serving on 2 committees; Book Lover’s Lunch and The Next Chapter (project to transition us into our next facility). They both bring an enthusiasm and serving spirit present in all of our wonderful volunteers. Suzanne & Claire also represent Bernie’s Book Bank’s dedication to creating opportunities for families to serve side by side together in a meaningful, fun and impactful way. Thank you Suzanne & Claire and all of our volunteers!
