Bright Spot: Book Drive
Updated: Wednesday, July 9 2014, 06:50 PM EDT
Wednesday’s Bright Spot shines on those who are helping “fill a ford” with books.
All summer long, Henderson Ford and business partners are asking the community to help fill a Ford F-150 with books. They will be donated to students at Rochester’s School #52.
“It’s a great way to give back to the community,” says Brian Henderson of Henderson Ford.“[It’s] a great way to give the kids who may not have access to the education, something to look forward to. The kids love it when we drop off the books and it’s not just educational books, it’s fun books, it’s something to read. I think it’s very important to get kids into reading at a very young age.”
The books can be new or used and should be appropriate for grades one through six.
Books can be dropped off at the Henderson Ford on Ridge Road in Webster.
