School-wide ser­vice project helps kids in need

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - COMMUNITY -

Over the sum­mer St. Mary’s Parish col­lected thou­sands of gen­tly-used books and hosted a book ex­change for the stu­dents. When school opened in Septem­ber the teach­ers choose books for the stu­dents in their classes. With hun­dreds of books still re­main­ing the school, along with stu­dents and their par­ents, hosted a free Book Give Away for the sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties. There was no limit to how many books the chil­dren could take.

After giv­ing away hun­dreds of books to the sur­round­ing com­mu­nity there were still enough books left to reach out to those chil­dren in a dif­fer­ent and di­verse learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment. The wide va­ri­ety of books, 11 very large boxes, were sent to Rice Ele­men­tary School on an In­dian Reser­va­tion in San Car­los, Ari­zona.

SUB­MIT­TED PHO­TOS
