Hamilton County Schools Kids 1st Coupon Books Sale Begins Friday

Friday, September 9, 2016

The annual Kids First Coupon Book sale begins Friday.  For two weeks, students in the Hamilton County elementary schools will be selling the nearly 200-page booklets that cost only $10 and feature hundreds of dollars in savings from area stores, restaurants, attractions and service providers.

During the past 28 years, the Kids First Coupon Book has raised nearly 14 million dollars for the Hamilton County Schools. Unlike other school fundraisers, Kids First is produced in-house by a non-profit organization, and all of the proceeds stay in Hamilton County for the benefit of local schools. The schools keep $7 for every book sold, and the money is allocated to a variety of programs and projects based on their individual needs. The remaining 30 percent of coupon book revenue covers program expenses and funds other projects that benefit the schools.

For more information, visit www.KidsFirstCouponBook.com or call (423) 209-5450.

Then Mitch entered our hearts in 1967 with the wonderful book, “Tuesdays with Morrie,” and, man, he was off to the races. ... (click for more)
