BOSTON, MA – The City of Boston Credit Union (CBCU) is hosting a children’s book drive throughout April in honor of the 10th anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings and in the spirit of One Boston Day, which will be held on Saturday, April 15.

One Boston Day recognizes the resiliency, generosity, and strength demonstrated by the people of Boston and those around the world in response to the tragedy of April 15, 2013. To demonstrate the generosity of our great city, CBCU is asking for new and gently used children’s book donations to be dropped off at any of its branch locations throughout the month.

At the end of April, CBCU will bring all book donations to the Boston Public Library to support the library’s mission of reading, literacy, and continued education for all. For every 15 book donations received, with “15” recognizing April 15, CBCU will purchase an additional book to donate to a local youth running group. Our selected book for donation, “Girl Running,” tells the story of Bobbi Gibb, a Massachusetts native who was the first woman to run and finish the Boston Marathon. The book honors the history of the Boston Marathon and the recent Women’s History Month.

Please join the City of Boston Credit Union as we come together with our communities for acts of kindness in recognition of our city’s spirit of care for one another.
