Associated Healthcare Credit Union is sponsoring a book drive for Star Studio March 1 - 31, 2023.

The books are distributed by staff of Star Studio to children facing an illness or health crisis.

If you're ordering books from Amazon, please order by March 25, 2023 to ensure we receive them by April 3rd, as that is the date we will deliver them to Children's Minnesota.
