After the success of the 2007 program, volunteers from Success Won’t Wait were excited to repeat this event. The Elbert Palmer School services low income families and has a high proportion of non-native English speakers.
In addition, most students are from an area that is not within easy walking distance of a public library. The books donated kept them reading over the summer. The teachers gave us an exact breakdown of students by grade and three books were provided for each student.
Founded in 2002, Success Won’t Wait, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit literacy organization based in Wilmington, Delaware. Want to learn more about Success Won’t Wait’s literacy projects, how to donate used books in Delaware, or volunteer your time? Click on the About Us tab to learn more.
