The Chapters for Charity book drive bridges together volunteerism and literacy in our community. “The most successful way to improve literacy levels is to increase the availability and access of books,” states Caroline Tesone, Founder of Chapters for Charity. “By asking my fellow students and the community to help in this cause will make everyone more aware of the importance of literacy in our youths, while at the same time being able to give back to a very important organization.”
