M&I Bank is collecting books

M&I Bank is collecting new and gently used children's books in support of "Read Indeed," a local children's literacy initiative.

The Read Indeed program began in 2007 when Maria Keller, a fourth-grader with a passion for reading, set a goal to collect and distribute one million books to needy children before she turns 18 years old.

New and gently used children's books can be dropped off at any of M&I Bank's 27 Minnesota locations before July 31. Donations will also be accepted at M&I Bank locations in Hudson and Prescott, Wis.

"Read Indeed is an inspirational program and M&I Bank is pleased to assist Maria with her goal of distributing books to children throughout the state who are in need," said Brad Chapin, regional president, M&I Bank.
