Spearheaded by Wendy Koenig, a veteran teacher, the students of Signal Hill Elementary School in Voorhees shook the trees and gathered 3,700 books for BookSmiles. This number puts us up to 30,000 books raised since our inception, nearly 16 months ago. At this rate, we'll easily hit 100,000 books within the next year and a half as huge donations become more common.
The kids involved in the service project originally had a 1,000 book goal. They blew it out of the water!!
Are you a teacher in a "book-rich" school district who thinks your school can raise at least 1,000 books? We can help you put them in appreciative hands and homes!
