Through Dec. 24, The Shirt Box, 32500 Northwestern Hwy. in Farmington Hills, will serve as a collection site for new and gently used books for the Detroit Literacy Coalition (DLC).

The DLC is a partnership of organization in southeast Michigan devoted to helping adults read, write and acquire the basic skills for success in today's world. Donations of books for adults and children are being accepted at the store. 

“This is one of the important causes that unites our staff. We feel there few gifts better than the gift of reading. Being able to read opens doors and leads to better quality of life for children and families,” said Ron Elkus, co-owner of The Shirt Box. “The problem of illiteracy is a community issue, we can work together to help solve it.”
