The Joyful Noise C-Fund held its annual Pizza and Books giveaway at Loutit District Library on March 14.

More than 350 people attended, with 50 pizzas served and approximately 1,500 books given away to children of all ages.

“Lots of smiling faces were seen in and out of the event as children carried around their book bags full of age-appropriate reading materials (and) child development resources, and decorated construction hats for 'building' literacy,” said Chantal Elise of the Joyful Noise preschool. 

The giveaway is a collaboration among many businesses in the community, and everything was donated to help keep the event free.

Contributors were: Brilliance Publishing, School Zone Publishing, Domino's, Joyful Noise Christian Childcare C-Fund, Grand Haven Head Start, R.E.A.D., Loutit District Library, First Presbyterian Church, Sweet Temptations, Great Lakes Chili Dogs, The Bookman, a group of eighth-graders at Lakeshore Middle School, 11 National Honor Society students from Grand Haven High School, and many other volunteers.
