Having the time to help others during a scary time, helping the helpless, and seizing this moment as am ‘opportunity’ to advance literacy in so many children’s world at home was my initial thought. We collected, boxes, and delivered 5,000 to families of Branches, Inc, 5,000 books to homeless residents of Camillus House, 7,000 books to United Way for distribution at COVID-19 testing sites, and delivered 9,000 books in indivisible boxes to the homes of families of Breakthrough Miami. Each time was an incredible experience."
