Community Relations and Member Development Manager Ashleigh Robinson said, “At First Florida Credit Union, we make it our mission to enrich people’s lives every day and nothing can enrich the life of a child quite like reading! Books open up a world of new ideas and opportunities for kids of every age. They help children to grow and thrive. If we can put a book into a child’s hands today, we will have played a small part in the amazing things they will accomplish in our community tomorrow.”

All of the books collected for Tenikka’s Books for Kids are given to children who meet their reading goals, during the Jacksonville Public Library’s Summer Reading Program. They receive the books for free.
