I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to the community of Camp Verde for allowing Camp Verde Middle School to host a successful Scholastic Book Fair. Several local businesses collected for the "One for Books" program.
These donations not only directly impact our community in providing trade books for our classrooms and school library but also impact our country.
Scholastic matches the donations and distributes this amount in books to three national organizations helping families in need: Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc., Toys for Tots, and National Center for Family Literacy.
As a community, we generated over $500 for the "One for Books" program. I would like to thank the following businesses for their support of this program: Camp Verde Feeds, Bashas', A Step in Time Books, Simply Gary's, Mobil, Shell, and Chevron.
Also, I would like to recognize the time and effort that the faculty and staff of Camp Verde Middle School donated to promote literacy in our community. I extend a heartfelt thanks to Cydney Rumpf for her endless hours spent on this project.
