Make A Difference Day a huge success!
After spending all of September and part of October collecting new and like new children's books - we finally were able to sort and donate them today. With the help of the Boonton Area Girl Scouts, Lakeland Hills YMCA Leaders and the use of the Boonton Elks lodge, we organized, sorted and labeled over 6,000 books today! In total, we collected 8,500 books - a new record!
After we spent the morning organizing, 16 different schools and organizations came to pick up all the books. By 1pm we were done and every book donated.
This was a fabulous project and thanks to all the residents who donated, businesses that we used as drop off sites and the groups that help sort, label and organize.
What a team effort!
