A charity started by a 10-year-old Lancaster County girl in 2009 is receiving a boost from Books-A-Million this holiday season.

BAM has selected Alyssa's Bedtime Stories as the recipient of the charity drive at its Lancaster store in Park City Center. Through Christmas Eve, customers at any BAM location may purchase items to be donated to the designated local charity. Customers also can include a personalized bookplate with their donation.

Founded by Alyssa Deraco, who is now 14, Alyssa's Bedtime Stories has given more than 10,000 books and more than 3,000 pairs of pajamas to underprivileged and homeless children locally and in Guatemala and Honduras.

Books-A-Million, which has more than 250 locations, is traded on the Nasdaq under the ticker symbol BAMM.
