• Holiday Meeting – December 8, 2020
    Our annual holiday meeting will be online. Please look for the meeting link in the listserv email.


Celebrate the coming holiday season with your CAHSLA colleagues. In order to allow us to still gather and have our annual book drive, we are partnering with the CINCY BOOK BUS and LIGHTHOUSE YOUTH & FAMILY SERVICE for a virtual meeting, conduct our drive and make book donations. Melanie Moore of the CINCY BOOK BUS will join us to tell us about her work to fight illiteracy and get books into the hands of children.

We will conduct a contactless book drive by placing orders through the CINCY BOOK BUS website. The drive will run from November 23 to December 11.

Information about the event and instructions for the book drive are in the flyers.

We are hoping to reach a sales goal of $150. If we make $200, then Melanie Moor e will match our donation. The recipients of the books are the participants in the following programs:
