Not Just Books!

In addition to books and computers Reader To Reader also donates school supplies.

Pictured is Reader To Reader founder David Mazor and Navajo Pine High School shop teacher Robert Carrick standing next to thousands of dollars worth of shop equipment, including butane torches, propane torches and saw blades.

Reader To Reader was able to donate the supplies thanks to the generosity of Newell Rubbermaid, a global marketer of consumer and commercial products. The supplies came from the company’s Lenox division.

Teacher Robert Carrick at Navajo Pine High School in Navajo New Mexico does an incredible job of teaching welding, automotive repair and computer assisted drafting. He single-handedly gives his students a host of employable skills in an area with 90% unemployment. He is an extraordinarily devoted teacher who deserves accolades for all his hard work. He has personally donated thousands of dollars in equipment and supplies to the school for the benefit of his students.

A special thank you to Chuck Wahr, Vice President & General Manager, Worldwide Band Saw Business, at Lenox, for making this donation possible.

And a special thank you to Newell Rubbermaid for their incredible sense of corporate responsibility. This is a very fine company!
