Members of the Goodwill-Suncoast Book Works Program made a surprise delivery to Harbour View Elementary School in Summerfield recently.
The program, directed by Torrie McGriff at the Goodwill-Suncoast store in Oxford, delivered 540 gently used books for grades 1-3, which quickly put smiles on the faces of Principal Robert Hensel and Assistant Principal Sarah Dobbs.
Although the Book Works program has been an initiative of Goodwill-Suncoast for many years, this delivery marked the first time Harbour View Elementary has been a recipient. The opportunity was arranged through Rotary Club of The Villages – Evening following an informational luncheon in Florida’s Friendliest Hometown hosted by Goodwill-Suncoast.
Going forward, the club and Goodwill-Suncoast plan to collaborate on other projects in Summerfield that will benefit the families of Harbour View Elementary students, said Villager Sue Bodenner, project chair for Rotary Club of The Villages – Evening.
