Teachers Book Drive, Saturday Thank You

Our back to school teachers book drive was a huge success today! We were able to impact over 150 classrooms! Thank you to everyone who came down to our headquarters. We had teachers from all over Connecticut and even a few from New York too. Each teacher left with a full bag of free books and a new excitement for literacy.

Today was filled with so many emotions, but we know that this is an event that Vicki would have been first in line for.

Unfortunately, today we gave away most of our books in our children’s library, grades K-5, but we do have middle and high school level books for teachers who are able to come by tomorrow!

We want to extend a huge thank you to Scholastic and their “Open A World of Possible” initiative for donating these books. The looks on teachers faces makes all of the hard work worth it. #teamvickisoto #sharepossible
