Archie Comics has donated more than $1 million worth of children’s books to the Toys for Tots nonprofit organization.
Here’s more from the press release: “Archie Comics wants to encourage its fans to join in with a new initiative called ‘Archie’s Give-a-Book Program,’ to spread the gift of giving to children. Making books available to every child to encourage creativity and literacy is an important mission to Archie Comics.”
To commemorate this, the editorial team has created a special story called “Holiday Heroes.” The story follows the Riverdale High students working together to help out Toys For Tots. Readers will find it in Archie Double Digest issue #246.
