First Book In The Gorge Now Books For Kids

The First Book organization in Hood River and Wasco counties has become Books For Kids Columbia Gorge.  The non-profit organization seeks to get books into the hands of underserved young children.  The organization’s Nancy Johansen Paul says the main reason for the change is because the national First Book organization will no longer accept checks, and that’s how most local contributors support their efforts.  Paul says they have created their own name, but will still be affiliated with the national organization.  Gorge Ecumenical Ministries will serve as Books For Kids Columbia Gorge’s fiscal agent.  The group will now also be serving Klickitat and Skamania counties.
