Whitefish’s Meals on Wheels program is $500 richer thanks to a pledge from the Whitefish Credit Union to readers signed up at the Whitefish Library’s Summer Reading Challenge. The Credit Union pledged $1 for every row readers completed in their tracking logs up to $500, with money earned earmarked for Whitefish Community Center’s Meals on Wheels delivery.
Enthusiastic readers took up the challenge, putting cobblestone stickers on a mural to “Pave the Way” for Meals on Wheels delivery. Before the end of Summer Reading Challenge, readers had earned the entire $500 pledge, placing 1,190 stickers on the mural. Altogether, 263 readers read 4,958 hours. That’s 7 months of reading, day and night! Way to go, Summer Reading Challenge readers!
