More than 3,000 books collected during Jingle Jog in Poplar Bluff

POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) -

More than 3,000 children’s books were collected for the 10th annual Jingle Jog at Oak Grove Elementary.

The jingle jog is a school-wide event held during schools hours in which students incorporate physical fitness with a community service project.

Students estimated how many laps they could run in seven minutes. They collected 3,120 books.

The nonprofit chosen for the fund raising drive this year was the Little Red Bookshelf project.

They will supply books for students at select businesses throughout the community.
