DALLAS, Jan. 9, 2020 - Comerica Bank will host a new book drive, in partnership with KPMG Family for Literacy Dallas, at its Snider Plaza Banking Center (6829 Hillcrest Ave.; Dallas, TX 75205) starting Monday, Jan. 13 through Friday, Jan 24, 2020.
The new books will be donated to nearby Benjamin Franklin Middle School, a Dallas Independent School District campus, that welcomed 350 displaced Cary Middle School students after last fall’s North Texas tornadoes destroyed their campus.
“Shortly after the tornadoes hit, we made a $10,000 contribution to the American Red Cross and its disaster relief efforts and will continue our support of the communities we serve through our upcoming book drive,” said Brian Foley, Texas Market President. “We hope our contributions and the community’s generous donations will help enhance Franklin Middle School’s library.”
In addition to dropping off new books at the Snider Plaza Banking Center, donors can also make monetary donations via the KPMG Family for Literacy Dallas online donation site. All proceeds will be used to purchase books for Franklin.
Comerica Bank and KPMG will deliver the books to Franklin Middle School during the last week of January.
