This December Local 1650 conducted another successful Gift of Reading campaign. Local 1650 members should feel proud that they contributed over $500 and over 400 books to Focus Hope. Gift of Reading leaders, Angela Hathikhanavala and Pamela Stewart wanted to give special thanks to Tracie Varitek who ran the Scholastic Book Fair. More than 100 books were donated through the fair. In addition, one generous member donated about 100 books himself. The leaders of the Gift of Reading project and the the officers of Local 1650 extend our thanks.

Many of the donated books will become part of the new lending library at Focus Hope, which is for the Center’s children and their families. Some will go into individual classrooms, and the balance go home with the families.

Local 1650 conducts the Gift of Reading campaign each December. Watch for announcements in late November, or early December for your chance to donate next year.
