Students in Bala Cynwyd Middle School's buildOn team collected seven boxes of books to donate to the Gen. George A. McCall Elementary and Middle School in Philadelphia for that school's 100 Book Challenge.
Anna Brown, wife of 76ers Coach Brett Brown, reached out the BCMS community when she learned of McCall's need for books.
Anna Perng, of the Friends of McCall organization, shared, "Today Anna delivered SEVEN boxes of books in like-new condition for our K-8 elementary school. Our students were so excited to see new and popular book series. Our Literacy Committee will meet on Wednesday to level the books for our 100 Book Challenge."
She added, "Words can't express how much we appreciate Anna, buildOn, and Bala Cynwyd Middle School community's generosity! Instead of having to spend several thousand dollars to replenish our 100 Book Challenge inventory, we can devote those financial resources to other critical needs at our school."
