Sometimes things can get pretty hectic and we ask ourselves "why are we doing this?" We would like to share some of the praises we have received from book recipients from over the years that makes what we do worth while.
"Thank you so much for the generous gift of books. Our reading program much appreciates these learning tools."
"I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the complimentary book "Daddies Are for Catching Fireflies." We truly appreciate the opportunity to provide our low-income children and their families an opportunity to improve their literacy abilities with such great books at a discount price. We look forward to seeing the next batch of books.
Betty Alvarez Ham, President, City Impact, Inc."
"I would just like to thank you for the books we recently received from your company. I can´t tell you how much this means to the centers, preschools, and home providers to receive quality books for the children in their care. With the rising costs involved in running a quality center, every book, toy, art supply, etc. they receive free of charge is a great gift!
Learning to read is essential for a child´s future success and your company has shown their desire to instill early literacy by providing these books"
Sue Junge, Marshall County Empowerment Area
" I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your generous support to DVDs4Vets. Your gift will be appreciated by those Veterans who will have hours of entertainment as a result of your donation of Audio Books. Your donation will be distributed to multiple VA facilities.

" On behalf of all the children and staff at our After-School Program here at The Salvation Army, we want to take a moment of your time to let you know how appreciative we are of the books you have given us. We constantly stress to the children the importance of reading. Because of your generosity the children have more reading materials available to them. Words cannot express how truly grateful we are for your kindness.
