Since 2003, volunteers at Success Won’t Wait have participated in National Make a Difference Day, and this year was no exception. Given the absence of a large event this year, instead, we gathered at the SWW warehouse/office to sort through some of the thousands of books we received a few weeks ago at the Used Book Drive at Duel on the Delaware.
I’m happy to report that the day was a great success! We were able to move through quite a bit of the “mountain” of donations and find appropriate books for various upcoming projects including:
• Delaware Hospice’s Festival of Trees, Book Sale (November)
• PAL of Philadelphia library construction (November)
• Book Basket Delivery for 12 Nemours waiting rooms (November)
• “Sibling” book gifts for 12 Nemours waiting rooms (November)
• Jobs for Delaware Graduates (December)
Many thanks to the volunteers who braved the torrential rains to make it out on this special day of giving back!
