BB&T Bank Wraps Books for Cara McCollum Birthday Book Project

Last Edited:

We had a few guests here at our SNJ Today studios this afternoon doing their part to help give some special gift to kids in our area.

Volunteers from BB&T Bank came out on Tuesday, May 15th, to wrap books for the Cara McCollum Birthday Book Project.

Former SNJ Today news anchor Cara McCollum started the Birthday Book Project in Arkansas when she was still in high school, and she continued the program during her time as Miss New Jersey in 2013.

Cara's goal was to put a book in the hands of children in need so that no child would go without a gift for their birthday, and she thought "What better gift to give, than the gift of reading?"
