Thank You Preschool Families

posted Nov 6, 2010, 6:12 AM by Allen Edinberg
As part of our Festival Day celebration for Simkat Torah, the JCC Preschool Families donated gently used childrens' books. 
 
We collected nearly 400 books, about 300 of which have been donated to Horizons for Homeless Children.  Horizons for Homeless Children improves the lives of homeless children by providing early care and education in our Community Children's Centers, creating Playspaces (recreational spaces) in shelters throughout Massachusetts and recruiting thousands of volunteers to help us in our efforts.
 
Our donated books will be used as part of Horizon's programs in 19 homeless shelters throughout Central Massachusetts.
 
The remaining books are being donated to an area literacy program.
 
THANK YOU! to all who donated and supported this effort!
