From all of us here at your local Goddard School (5005 West Theodore Street, Plainfield), we want to thank you for your support during our book drive with Bernie's Books.
We set an ambitious goal of
collecting 5,000 new or gently-used children's books at our school.
After a mere two weeks, we had over 1,500 donated books piling up at
our collection boxes across Plainfield and Shorewood. From students
and parents, to business owners and Mayor Chapman himself, everyone
got involved in our donation drive.
Between 18 participating
Chicagoland Goddard Schools, over 44,000 books were collected and
delivered to Bernie's in Lake Forest.
At your local Goddard School
alone, we surpassed our goal and received 6,100 donations, all
because of your generosity.
We feel truly blessed to
work with a great organization like Bernie's Books, which is
committed to promoting reading readiness for all children. Their
dedication to helping those less fortunate inspires our entire
Goddard Family in Plainfield.
