The Whitestown UPS store owner, Don Barrett has selected the the Boys & Girls Club of Boone County to receive nearly $2,000 worth of books. The UPS store in Whitestown participates in the Toys for Tots Literacy Program. donations made to the store are utilized to support literacy in the community. 38 boxes of books were delivered to the Whitestown Unit and will be distributed throughout the county.
Since opening the Whitestown location three years ago, Don has partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Boone County. We were so blessed by our customers and employees to raise enough money over the holidays to be able to direct our donation. As a long time Boone County resident and parent of former club participants we thought this was a logical choice. They do such great work in our community, says Barrett.
“Thank you to Don and the Whitestown UPS store for stepping up and supporting area youth through this program,” says Mark Branch, Boys & Girls Club of Boone County CEO. During the pandemic, the focus on reading and loss of knowledge has been a program focus for our members.”
