To the Staff at Reader to Reader,
My name is Amy Laurenza and I grew up in Hadley, where my parents still live. Five years ago I moved to New Orleans to teach, and for the last five years I have been teaching 9th and 10th grade reading. I am home for the holidays and I happened to be reading the local paper and read the article about the large shipment of books you sent down to New Orleans. I just wanted to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for your support of our students and children. It is such an amazingly generous thing, and it is so good to know that the struggles of my community are being addressed by such a generous organization!
