Singer-songwriter and actor Tyler Hilton’s non-profit charity, T.H. Books for Kids, has announced its annual book drive this year will benefit Shelter from the Storm, an organization in the Coachella Valley of California that provides services for victims of domestic violence.
The goal is to stock the Shelter from the Storm library so that the many children who come through their facility will have a vast collection of books available to them. In addition, many of these books will be available for the children to keep.
Hilton, who appeared as young Elvis Presley in the film Walk the Line and had an ongoing guest role on the CW TV show One Tree Hill, officially launched T.H. Books for Kids in 2006. The 501(c)(3) non-profit public benefit corporation works for the charitable purpose of providing books for children who may not otherwise have access to a wide variety of appropriate reading material.
January 18 – Ventura, CA @ Zoey’s Café
