Over the past several years, Wheatley has established a great partnership with Book Fairies, a wonderful organization that collects reading material for people in need throughout the metropolitan area. A Book Fairies collection has been a popular component of our Showdown competition, with thousands and thousands of books being collected for this organization.
As part of Wheatley’s 8th Annual Day of Service and Learning, students headed over to Freeport in order to volunteer at their facility. In addition to learning more about the mission of the organization, students learned to sort the donated books and prepare them for shipment to their new home. Led by Audra Beberman and Jo Beth Roberts (both of whom provided the photos!), students had a terrific day!
