When the folks at Anytime Fitness in Hockessin, Delaware contacted us about hosting a book drive in honor of National I Love to Read Month, we were excited. After all, this is a highly motivated group of people used to reaching their goals!

And, the Anytime Fitness book drive yielded a mountain of books — over 500 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.

A big thank you goes to our own Vincenza Carrieri-Russo and for coordinating the effort, as well as to the Anytime Fitness team, and Anytime Fitness owners Tony and Julie Panero for their month-long effort. It’s through donations like this that Success Won’t Wait is able to continue its mission to encourage reading and provide materials to those who need them most!

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.
