Winter Concert Book Drive Update
By: Ethan Mathieu
The Conard Courant, in partnership with the Conard Performing Arts Department, hosted a book drive during the Winter Concert. Here is a quick wrap-up detailing how it turned out!
In the spirit of the holidays, families were asked to bring children’s or young adult’s books to the Winter Concert. Donated books benefited the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center (CCMC). Overall, it was an immense success, with 60+ books collected in total. These gifts will hopefully help to foster a love of reading for children facing difficult times.
Since it went so well this year, we are looking into making it a recurring event and expanding its reach. Thank you to everyone who brought books!
