Juneteenth Children's Book Drive

As part of Marcel Digital's unwavering dedication to philanthropy, we are thrilled to share our recent initiative in honor of Juneteenth. Our team organized a book drive that focused on collecting children's books featuring Black characters and/or written by Black authors to donate to Bernie's Book Bank. Our goal was to enhance access to stories that authentically represent the experiences of Black children.
