Day of Caring Book Drive a Success at Yale
Once again, Yale did its part to build a “City of Readers” in the annual Day of Caring Book Drive that ran through September. This year, the Yale community donated 1,300 new and gently-used books, which were collected at locations around campus and then brought to New Haven Reads, the communitybook bank located in the city’s Dixwell neighborhood.
Diane Turner, Day of Caring chairwoman, held a thank-you reception in recognition of the volunteers’ work coordinating and collecting books for the book drive. At the reception, United Way’s Chief Operating Officer Heather Calabrese expressed her gratitude to the volunteers, in particular, and Yale University in general for its tremendous, ongoing support.
