Unicel book drive to start next week

Unicel wants to send local students back to school prepared this year.

The company's 106 retail stores, including Alexandria, will be accepting donated new or gently used children's books between August 25 and September 7.

During this period, anyone who brings in a book will be eligible for up to $50 off select phone models at Unicel.

All donated books will be split between the Dogulas County Library and YMCA childcare.

Unicel is located at 505 North Nokomis and 3905 Dakota Street SW in Alexandria.
