As most of you know, Success Won’t Wait accepts book donations from many sources — publishers, book stores, and individual citizens. Every once and a while, we are fortunate to meet another organization with complementary goals. And, that’s just what happened when one of our biggest supporters put us in touch with the Mitzvah Circle Foundation!
The Foundation provides support in the form of goods, service, gift cards and information for individuals and families when they are in a time of need. They also provide opportunities for people who want to help others to do so — encouraging volunteers to reach out to others in innovative ways . One example is the Foundation’s Adopt-a-Class Program which gives school supplies, clothing and other essential items to school children living in difficult circumstances or poverty.
Yesterday, representatives from the Foundation delivered a van full of like-new books for elementary school aged children through adults – over 90 boxes worth. Preliminary estimates put the donation somewhere over 3,500 books!
Many, many thanks to the wonderful folks at the Mitzvah Circle Foundation for this generous donation. Now we can really get busy and fulfill some of the book requests from schools, libraries, and teachers that have been languishing for lack of age-appropriate books!
