Kids Helping Kids

Dear VBS families,

“Kids Helping Kids” is the theme for Ripon Area VBS’s 2024 mission outreach.

The VBS team is excited to promote Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library as this year’s opportunity for your kids to help kids.

Dolly’s passion is to prepare kids for kindergarten and give them tools to succeed in achieving their lives’ dreams through the love of reading.

Imagination Library, which Dolly founded in 1995 as a small outreach in her home county in Tennessee, is now available in communities around the US and Canada, the UK, the Republic of Ireland, and Australia. Today 260 kids aged 0 to 5 years who live in Ripon zip code 54971 receive a high-quality, age-appropriate book for free each month regardless of their family’s financial situation.

Dolly states, “You can never get enough books into the hands of enough children.” This is where you come in. Will you consider a *$2.00 donation for your child to bring to VBS each day? The VBS team will announce the total of your gifts, and the number of books it will buy, at Family Night on the last day of VBS.

Thank you,
The VBS team

*Giving is not required to attend VBS. Please consider giving an amount that is comfortable for your family–gifts of any amount will be gratefully accepted. Each book costs $2.20
