I am so excited to have College Community Schools benefit from your program! We are excited to have the books in our IMC and feature them during America Reads. Every year we have multiple families effected by cancer and the books will certainly be helpful to families as well as informational reading for all. Thanks again for your involvement at College Community! Sue Skala

Principal, Prairie Creek Intermediate

Thank you for the gift of books to our IMC. I know that their message will be a perfect fit to share with students should someone in their life be affected by cancer or to build their understanding and compassion for individuals in treatment. Laura Medberry
