The Episcopal Church Women of St. Andrew’s, Cincinnati, will present their second annual back to school book and school supplies fair on Saturday, August 11. The ECW will partner with several businesses and community organizations, such as Xavier University’s Bellarmine Chapel, three Cincinnati academic academies and the Evanston Community Recreation Center to present the fair, which will be held from noon to 3 p.m. at the Evanston Recreation Center.
This book fair was dedicated last year to a past beloved and devoted member of the St. Andrew’s family, Mrs. Gloria Turnage. Mrs. Turnage dedicated herself to the students in the Evanston community by providing them with backpacks and school supplies. The ECW of St. Andrew’s honors her memory in the form of this outreach mission.
Last year, the book fair gave away more than 700 books and 250 backpacks with school supplies to students from Evanston and several surrounding schools. The ECW of St. Andrew’s will continue to encourage the students to enjoy reading and to become lifetime readers.
