Parsons Moms Demand Action leader Sherri Spare (left) shows the books she collected for her Wear Orange project to donate to Melanie Chappel with My Family Labette. The books will be donated to families with children birth to 5, or included in a lending library at My Family Labette.

In the office of My Family Labette, Sherri Spare, a volunteer with Moms Demand Action, stood beside a table with boxes of books below it and stacked on top, and each box labeled for age groups, from babies, to toddlers, to preschool.

“This is great,” My Family Labette resource specialist Melanie Chappel said as she looked over the donations, which they estimate to be somewhere between 300 and 500 books.
