Dear Mr. Mazor,
On behalf of the Chicopee Public Schools I would like to thank you and Reader to Reader for the donation of over 25,000 books that were distributed to our students. Each of our 10 elementary Schools, and two middle schools had an opportunity to select books for their students. Books that were distributed to the Elementary Schools will be used for a wide variety of purposes. Many schools will be using multiple copies of books to enhance academic programs. On the first day of school many students will go home with a brand new book! During the holidays many students will also receive the gift of a book, all due to the generous donation made by your organization.
During our Title I Summer School Program, which serves over 1000 students, we hosted several ‘Bingo for Books’ events. This was a fun way to support attendance during our summer program. Students had an opportunity to interact in a social setting, while working on vocabulary activities. Each student that attended this event went home with one – two books. The success of this event can be directly attributed to your organization and making it possible for our students to expand their personal libraries.
Again, on behalf of the Chicopee Public Schools I would like to thank you for the donation you recently made.
Samuel A. Karlin, Principal
