This week Success Won’t Wait donated over 400 children’s books to Pleasantville Elementary School in New Castle, Delaware. The event was part of the Colonial School District book giveaway which will make a free book available for every K-5th grade student in the district.
The donation included plenty of just-can’t-put-it-down-books for the school’s young students. These books were culled from Success Won’t Wait’s collection and are books that the students may take home and keep.
Putting together this donation was made possible due to the ongoing committment of our student volunteers from the Mount Pleasant High School Special Education Program. Many thanks also go to Vincenza Carrieri-Russo for acting as Coordinator for this project, Irene Huschle-Ledford of Mt. Pleasant High School for scheduling volunteers,and retired Colonial School District teacher Mace Bloom who has been volunteering tirelessly every week prepping the donations.
