THE SMILE SPOT COLLECTED over 300 children’s books from their first Holiday Book Drive. 15 generous families donated their gently used children’s books which will be donated to local schools, including Aleph Bet, as well as schools in NY & NJ that were affected by Storm Sandy. Dr. Stephen also gave away tickets to Southbury’s Santa’s House to those who donated and were able to attend. The lucky winner of the “tote of many colors” is Nancy Crawford. We want to thank Laura Brown of The Jewelry Café in Southbury who donated the tote. We want to thank the following families for donating children’s books to our book drive: Puri, Brissette, Haas, McGahren, Finkel-Hozer, Crawford, Canada, Johnson, Huntley, Ross, Prebeck, Masi, Villadolid, Mireck and Czuchra families. We are so happy that you were all able to donate over 300 books. How amazing!
