Books and Computers Needed? Mission Accomplished – You Guys Rock

4th of July 036

Back in July I posted a Dear PoP requested computers and books for Sacred Heart Middle School Kids. The teacher, Ms. Kullberg, just sent the following email:

“Thank you from Ms. Kullberg’s class at Sacred Heart School!

Thank you to all of you who so generously donated everything from computers and printers to books and digital cameras to our class! We received books from as close as down the street and as far away as Texas.

My kids and I were so excited when the first computer arrived, and now we’re even more excited as we are gearing up for a new school year with a brand new writing center. We are SO touched by the outpouring of generosity from the Petworth and DC communities, and the biggest thank you I can offer doesn’t even seem like enough.

My student helpers and I have spent countless hours eagerly revamping my library shelves (evidently the books I had before weren’t as “AWESOME” as some of the donations) and hooking up monitors and keyboards. The look on my kids’ faces when they see all that you have donated is priceless and I can’t wait for the rest of my kids to join in on the excitement this September. As the school year moves along, we’ll be happy to always take your old books off your hands. Just come on by!

Thank you, PoP, for everything!

This is fantastic! I am so amazed that readers from Texas donated. I’m so amazed that I have readers in Texas… But seriously, this is all you guys, I just posted the info. The thanks goes to PoPville. You guys really are the best.
