Welcome to November! This month on 11/16, RCP heads to U City to visit the brand new Ginger Bistor (6665 Delmar). As we do every November, RCP is partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern MO in an effort to collect much needed items for the Littles served by the organization. This year, we will be collecting books! Specifically, we are looking to collect new, hardcover children’s books but if you have good condition used books, we welcome them. Ideal items would be chapter books (titles featuring minorities, sports or the Junie B. Jones, Goosebumps or Mary-Kate and Ashley series).

Other suggestions are:
