2020 has been a difficult year in so many ways. COVID-19 has touched us all in different ways, including our health and emotional well-being.


For the homeless and underserved communities, the pandemic has had a much more severe impact, causing food, hygiene, and housing insecurity.

During this time of hardship, Storytime Crafts has put into place 5 COVID-19 initiatives to provide free books to children and families in need, in addition to masks, hygiene products, bikes, games, and baby formula.
