Letter: Donations of books for education appreciated

Published: Wednesday, December 18, 2013 at 04:29 PM.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Craven County Partners in Education, thank you to everyone who donated children’s books (Pre-K – 12) in the recent book drive. The support was overwhelming and we received thousands of books!

The books collected were offered to local educators for use in their classrooms and media centers during the Book Giveaway held Dec. 12, at H.J. MacDonald Middle School.

We also want to extend a big thank you to Halifax Media Group, Newspapers In Education, and Craven Smart Start, who continue to have the vision to support this event and also serve as collection centers.

A special thank you to Linda Lawson and the Sun Journal for their support of this annual event by providing a tremendous amount of advertising and support.

The book drive is a testament to what a great partnership can accomplish when it works towards a common goal. By working together we can all make a difference in education in Craven County Schools.

Darlene Brown, Executive Director, Craven County Partners In Education
