We are soooo excited to let you know IYH more than quadrupled the goal of 1000 books collected for the Children of Agape Home. We collected 4420 books in our book drive during the month of March.
We met last Monday with friends, family and colleagues from Pfizer who volunteered for more than 6 hours to organized the books by categories (baby books, picture books and chapter books), despite the weather we had an amazing response of volunteers. We wrote and signed personal notes to insert in each book so the kids can read when they open the books.
This past Saturday, 10 boxes full of books were taken to Queens to a freight forwarder who will be shipping the books to Thailand. They soon will start the journey to Chiang Mai, and are supposed to arrive beginning of June.
We will like to thank everyone who helped during this book drive either by donating books, helping count and recording the progress, organizing them , boxing them or transporting them to where they were needed. None of it would have been possible without you.
Special thanks to Hapag Lloyd for allowing us to run a book drive in their office, to JK Golden Associates for donating more than 200 brand new books , to all of the colleagues from Pfizer for giving us their time.
