PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. - On Friday, May 19, Local 10's Todd Tongen and Neki Mohan will be crisscrossing South Florida aboard a big yellow bus collecting and distributing books.  It's all part of Local 10's "My Future My Choice" Big Book Drive.

They will stop at several locations throughout the day. Come out, say hello and donate a book to a child in need. 

But, if you can't make it to one of the locations, Local 10 has made it very easy and convenient for you to give.

Our partners at The Miami Foundation have established the "Local 10 Books" fund and 100 percent of the money donated will be used to buy brand new books. 

The goal is to collect 100,000 books to make a difference in 100,000 young lives.
