When the folks at Farmers Insurance in Wilmington, Delaware contacted us about hosting a book drive to benefit Success Won’t Wait’s literacy projects, we were excited. After all, this was a highly motivated and successful group of people! But, we never realized just how motivated

The Farmers Insurance book drive yielded a veritable mountain of books — over 1,440 of them! These are much-needed for ongoing literacy projects like the Nemours Pediatric Clinic book giveaway program and the ongoing collaboration with Treasures for Educators to outfit local classrooms in need.
