Our hardworking Citizen Summer interns, Meredith and Samia, loaded up the van for another delivery of brand new children’s books. Thankfully, they have strong backs because we have been delivering thousands of books to area schools.
Amherst College’s Citizen Summer Pioneer Valley program provides fully-funded summer internships for eight weeks so they can work for local non-profit organizations. It is a great way for them to learn about the needs of the local community while helping provided much needed assistance.
In addition to delivering books our interns are using their computer skills to design brochures, and research additional organizations that are in need of books.
