There was food, games, and all kinds of activities centered around children.
But Community Education's Enrichment and Volunteer Coordinator says this day was also dedicated to literacy with a book drive.
"And the banks and Kiwanis and Community Ed all have bins out," said Anne Grubbs. "We're collecting books that will be given to children's charities in the area, as well as, we're collecting canned food that we can give to the Red Cross and Salvation Army."
This was the 13th annual Stand for Children celebration in Bowling Green.
