World Caring Day highlights the different ways in which we connect and show care towards each other. It is important to recognize and appreciate the millions of acts of caring that occur every day, no matter how big or small they may be.

Caring can take many forms, such as showing compassion, support, kindness, and understanding. It is one of the simplest ways to show love, especially in a world full of worries. We all go through difficult times and need care, whether due to crises, illness, or any other challenges.

World Caring Day provides an opportunity to practice caring and express genuine love and compassion towards those around us.

“Be awesome! Be a book nut!” – Dr. Seuss

In 1995, Dolly Parton started the Imagination Library to provide books for children in her home county, inspired by her father’s inability to read and write. Her vision was to foster a love of reading among preschool children and their families, create excitement about books, and help every child, regardless of their family's income, to have access to books. Every month, children registered with her Imagination Library receive a free, age-appropriate book. If you sign your child up at birth, they will be able to receive 60 free books by their 5th birthday!

Enroll your child(ren) today: www.uwaybedfordpa.org/dolly-parton-imagination-library/

Or join us to send books to a local child. $25.00 will sponsor a child for them to receive books throughout the year.

Donations are accepted at Altoona First Savings Bank, Everett Branch (112 Willow Grove Drive, Everett, PA 15537).
