Lakeville North Memorial Book Drive Honors Alyssa Ettl

The book drive begins on Jan. 29 and ends with a community event on Feb. 12.

Two Lakeville North High School clubs are holding a book drive in memory of Alyssa Ettl, a Lakeville North student who was killed in a car crash.

Lakeville North's DECA chapter and the Lakeville North Fellowship of Christian Athletes are sponsoring the Memorial Book Drive. According to a news release:

The Memorial Book Drive was originally conceived by Ettl as a means to give back to the community. In her role as vice president of community outreach through the Lakeville North DECA chapter, Ettl was fervently dedicated to giving back to those in need, and now it is our goal to continue that mission in her honor.

All Lakeville Area Public Schools are participating in the drive, which begins on Wednesday, Jan. 29. Community members can leave book donations at drop-off locations in the lobbies of each school. Residents can also bring books to the drive's culminating event from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 12. Lakeville North will host the event, which will include live entertainment, food from local restaurants and a raffle.

Local sponsors consist of Green Mill, Buffalo Wild Wings, Jimmy Johns and Kwik Trip, according to the release.

The donated books will go to Andersen United Community School in Minneapolis.

Organizers ask for community involvement in the Memorial Book Drive. The release states: "Finishing the work laid forth by Ettl is extremely important to us and we look forward to seeing this through."
