Thanks to those of you who have supported Ellen and Kelsey O'Brien as they earn their Girl Scout Bronze Award. The girls as a team have collected 639 books. These books will benefit Chandler Public Library, St. Peters Mission School on the Gila Indian Reservation, and Arizona Health Access programs for lower income children, and nursing homes in the East Valley.
The second half of their Bronze award work involves a book collection and sale at Santan Elementary in south Chandler. After collecting books from families in the school district for two weeks, a book sale will be held on May 1. The sale is a fund-raiser for three teachers who are participating in the 3-day Walk for a Cure for Breast Cancer research. The book sale is on Friday, May 1, from 3:00 to 6:00 pm at the Santan Junior High Cafeteria. Both Santan Elementary and Junior High are located at 1550 Chandler Heights Road, between Cooper and McQueen. The books will be priced at 50 cents to $1.00 each.
All of the remaining books after the sale are consolidated with your generous donations and given to the Chandler Public Library for further distribution. Thank you again for your support. Kathy O'Brien
