NeighborWorks® Housing Solutions (NHS), the leading housing service provider in southern Massachusetts, recently received a donation of nearly 800 Scholastic® school books from Wells Fargo.
These books, which are geared toward younger learners (pre-K to Kindergarten), feature diverse characters and stories, and are being distributed through Scholastic, a leader in publishing and education for almost 100 years.
The books will be distributed to children and families living in NHS housing, as well as children in family shelters and other children whose families participate in NHS programs.
“With so much remote learning and communication now required as a result of the ongoing pandemic, the impact of a child receiving a physical book is that much more meaningful,” said Serenity Belo, resource development director for NHS. “We’re grateful to Wells Fargo, and for their ongoing partnership with our organization.”
“NeighborWorks Housing Solutions provides so much more than housing to these children and their families,” said Briana Curran, vice president of Communications and Social Impact for Wells Fargo. “We’re glad to contribute in ways that support their mission of promoting health and well-being by developing housing and providing housing resources and education in a collaborative manner.”
