received our first donation of new books for the Christmas season from the Barnes
& Noble Book Store in Naperville.
HSP is one of the three chosen charities who
will receive new books donated by Barnes & Noble customers throughout the
holiday season. They have supported HSP in
some fashion for at least the last 13 years.
Over that time, they have donated thousands of books for local youths;
therefore, promoting active young readers throughout the community. The new books include many popular authors
and favorite titles; such as, stories by Dr. Seuss and Beverly Cleary; as well
as, titles like Curious George. These
new books will help facilitate the importance of higher learning within local
|A few books from the first delivery provided by Barnes & Noble in |
HSP, These new books are used for needy
children; furthermore, new books always hold prominence in the programs they serve.
The programs that distribute new books to the community are; the Children
Birthday Project, where the children receive 5 to 7 new books as apart of their
birthday package; also, these same books are being included as gifts during the
Christmas Offering as well. Without
these new donations, many needy area youths would be deprived of a fundamental
piece of education. Regular reading can
provide confidence and inspiration for a person’s educational development
regardless of age; meaning, it is imperative for the young and the
impressionable to have the resources to empower their futures.
We thank Barnes & Noble for providing a service that seeks to lend a helping hand in developing the thinkers and doers of the future, because education makes a community better. Barnes & Noble understands this concept and its relationship to developing young readers. We also thank the individuals who donated new books to the service that Barnes & Noble provide, and encourage all of our supporters to do the same. Barnes & Noble has a daily goal of 40 new books, and they enjoy exceeding this goal. The drive runs throughout the holiday season, and in the season of giving, what is better than a gift of hope, knowledge, and personal freedom.
