BJC HealthCare 2018 Book Brigade

Join BJC in making a donation to the BJC Book Brigade. This year, BJC is expecting to help support nearly 26,000 students going into third grade in the summer/fall of 2018 in public schools located in communities BJC serves. Donations for the 2018 BJC Book Brigade drive runs until March 19. 

Did you know children going into third grade are moving from learning to read to reading to learn? Helping with that transition could improve the likelihood that a child will graduate from high school and live a healthier life.
