Those of you feeling glum as you watch leaves turn and mornings cool off will perhaps be somewhat cheered by this piece of news.
The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation has added a new initiative to its Toys for Tots Literacy Program.
Operation Turn the Page aims to close the summer reading gap by connecting more economically disadvantaged kids with books over the summer.

You can read more about Operation Turn the Page in a Toys for Tots news release, which also includes a link to contribute.
