Coast Young Professionals Collect Books for the Children of Harrison County
MS GULF COAST - The Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce, Inc. is pleased to announce the Coast Young Professionals will host their Holiday Sweater Soiree on December 13, 2018, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Harrah’s Gulf Coast.
Door prizes from local businesses will be available to win for attendees who bring a new or gently used book for children and teens, or a $5 donation to go towards the book drive. All donations will be given locally to schools and organizations in need of books in Harrison County this holiday season.
“Coast Young Professionals’ mission is to develop young leaders across the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and what better way to do that than sharing our love of learning and reading with children in our community,” says Kaila Moran Griffith, Director of Coast Young Professionals.
Coast Young Professionals members believe that reading at a young age is instrumental to the growth, education, and development of a child. “We hope that our donations will foster a love of learning for our next generation of leaders,” Moran Griffith shares.
If you are unable to attend the Holiday Sweater Soiree, please bring books or donations to the Chamber office at the Knight Nonprofit Center. The event is complimentary for members, and $10 for general admission. Contact Kaila Moran Griffith at firstname.lastname@example.org to donate door prizes or to ask questions about admission.
