Success Won’t Wait volunteer Christine McNeill recently began an exciting project to help the K-12th grade schools of Camden County, NJ. Her goal is to donate 10,000 books to the various schools in the county for in-classroom mini libraries, as well as school library expansions.
But, Christine can’t do it alone! So, she has enlisted the help of several longtime Success Won’t Wait volunteers to help her reach her goal, including Jon Mason and Anna Gonye. This weekend, the trio made great strides sorting and organizing donated books into grade levels.
Pictured here (left to right) are Christine McNeill, Jon Mason and Anna Gonye packing up the car with over 2,000 children’s books which have been cleaned, sorted into grade level, and are ready for delivery to Camden schools!
This is a great start… but, we need more!
So, we are asking our loyal followers and donors to please share this project with family, friends and coworkers. The most urgent need is for high quality books appropriate for grades K-5. The first schools slated to receive books are:
- Cooper B. Hatch Family School
- Davis Family School
- McGraw Elementary School
- Yorkship Family School
- H.B. Wilson Family School
For more information on donating, please call Christine McNeill at 302-388-9669. Thank you for supporting our mission!
