Bingo for Books
One of our most popular events of the year is coming up in March. Bingo for Books collection has begun! Bins have been placed at Hampstead Central School for the collection of new or gently used books to be used for our Bingo for Books event. You can find the bins located outside the main office. Please flip through the books before donating to make sure there are no missing pages or pages that are written on. Thank you! 

We appreciate all of your donations that will help make this event a success - we hope to send each child home with as many books as possible!
