Make a Difference in Sacramento

News10 needs your help to make a difference in the lives of local children and families!

We're asking our community to donate books for a new children's library in The Salvation Army's E. Claire Raley Transitional Housing Center in Sacramento. News10 staff and volunteers will be building the children's library on Oct. 26 for Make a Difference Day, an international day of community service.

The E. Claire Raley Transitional Housing Center provides housing and needed services to homeless families. It's designed to help clients find permanent residences and employment. News10 hopes its project will provide children with a quiet place to do their homework and read while their families reside at the center.

You can help the project by donating children's books at any Sacramento Library between Oct. 21-25. Your donations will help create a comforting, inspirational and educational space for kids in need.

Thanks to the library and Friends of the Sacramento Public Library for donating books and computers to help our efforts. We also thank RC Willey for donating furnishings and iPads. And thanks to artists Rene and Cameron Villa, who are donating their time to help transform the space into an inspirational and positive learning environment for children and their families.

Finally, thanks to YOU for helping to Make a Difference in Sacramento!
