Guam - Some creative thinking and collaboration with a school in Granville, Michigan resulted in more than 2,000 lbs. of books being collected and delivered for Finegayan Elementary School students. Special education teacher Jackie Schniers was able to have a friend in Michigan put together a book drive for the school here and a transport company brought the nearly 4,000 books to California, where Triple B picked them and shipped them to Guam - all for free.
"These will go to the kids," she explained. "A lot of the bins we have the kids get to come and get them for free. We have over 900 students in our school so each of them get to have two free books that they can have and take home, makes me feel good that they'll have books in their home now."
Schniers says the book drive also resulted in a collection of various teaching materials for the faculty of the school as well.
