Under-privileged kids receive book donations


"Most of our families are just making ends meet and so when it comes to having extra money to buy books, they just don't have it," said Stansbury Elementary School Principal Ernie Broderick.

The "Drop 5 for the Book Drive" donation, hosted by Read Today and Papa Murphy's, raised enough to provide books for the 940 students at Stansbury, and organizers expect the final number of books collected will be 12,000. Friday, teachers ripped open the boxes and students picked out a book of their own to take home and read over the summer.
