Express China Restaurant Gives the Gift of Reading

Thanks to Express China Restaurant, forty Washington County preschoolers will be able to sign up for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library for an entire year. 

The Dolly Parton Imagination Library is free to all Washington County residents under the age of five.  Once signed up, the child will receive an age appropriate book mailed to their house each month.  If a child signs up at birth, by their fifth birthday they will receive 60 books, all free.

“This is a tremendous service,” stated Judy Johnson, Executive Director of the Washington County Community Foundation.  “We could not offer it without the support of generous donors such as Express China Restaurant.”

It only costs $26.00 per year to sponsor a child.   If you would like to become a sponsor, contact the Washington County Community Foundation office at 812-883-7334, or mail your check to Washington County Community Foundation, PO Box 50, Salem, IN  47167. 

The mission of the Washington County Community Foundation is to engage people, build resources and strengthen our community.  Visit the website at and like the Foundation on Facebook.
