Book Blast Program Receives Overwhelming Community Support

Earlier this month, we highlighted the winners of the Book Blast program’s “Treasure Chests,” which contained books meant to help these Grimshaw students begin to build their own at-home libraries. As part of that program, the students themselves undertook a campaign to try to send donation links to 10 people each, so that any community members who wanted to contribute to this awesome program could do so.

To say that the community “came through” in this regard is a vast understatement, as more than $21,000 was raised to help put books in the hands of students as we approach the summer! This meant that each student at Grimshaw recently received, at minimum, four books to add to their libraries at home!

A sincere and heartfelt “thank you” goes out to everyone for their contributions, which will help enable students to go on literary adventures for weeks to come.
