We collected more books than the VA hospitals could handle, so we offered them to other organizations as well, including the Vietnam Veterans of America, Project Hospitality, and the NAACP.
“Thank you to all who donated to this program. It’s great when a plan – and a community – comes together, isn’t it?” said Borough President Oddo. “I recently got a wonderful thank you note from Tammy Greer-Brown on behalf of the NAACP, who distributed books at the West Brighton Harmony Day; she said the books were a big hit!”
Special thanks to local authors Eddie Joyce and Dolores Morris for their donations of their books to the program.
