23 Apr A Big Thank You To Our Dedicated Volunteers!!!
April is National Volunteer Appreciation Month and a time to pause and thank everyone who has volunteered to support our mission to provide an ongoing source of books to underserved children throughout New Jersey!
Our work would not be possible without the work of our dedicated volunteers. Since our beginning in 2003, Bridge of Books Foundation has been able to get more than 900,000 books in the hands of New Jersey’s underserved children to support the development of literacy skills and encourage a love of reading. Volunteers have helped out in a great many ways—collecting and donating books; sorting books for distribution, including our Sunday Sorting events; supporting special programs like Books & Barbers and Books 365; and participating in reading events at local schools to honor Dr. Seuss. Because of this invaluable contribution, we’re eager to say a big public “Thank you volunteers! We salute you!”
To each and every one of our volunteers, my sincere thanks. I am honored to work side-by-side with such caring and giving individuals.
Abigail A. Daly, Founder and Executive Director
