Boys and Girls Club to raise money for July 4th fireworks

The Boys and Girls Club of Elk River will be reading to help raise money for the Elk River Independence Day celebration’s fireworks display held at Lions Park.

Club members will be asking for donations between now and June 1. Kids will ask for donations based on the number of pages they read from May 1 through June 1. Donors can choose to cap the amount they will donate with a maximum donation.

Kids will read books of their choosing. They will then track the book, author and the number of pages in that book. Parents, teachers, and Boys and Girls Club staff/volunteers have to sign off on the book to verify the book was read.

Donation sheets and reading logs can be picked up at the Boys and Girls Club in Elk River and the Elk River Library.
