This eventwill begin on November 16thand continue through Christmas Eve!
Santa needs your help – it’s very simple!
“Unwrap the Gift of Reading” by bringing new or gently used books to Pembroke Mall and drop them in the Red Donation Bins that are placed around the mall. AND…If you come to see Santa and give him just 1 book, he will give you a $5.00 discount on a beautiful picture of you and him!
Talk to your Church, Schools, PTA’s and Clubs…this could be BIG! Very BIG!
