On Friday,May 2nd 2014, The Turkish Cultural Center donated books to a book drive Southern Connecticut State University hosted. The Turkish Cultural Center arranged approximately fifty books for the second graders whom where in need of new books. Our volunteers spent time reading books to the students.
The goal was to bridge the gap between accessibility to resources and the economically disadvantaged school. The book drive was very successful. The students were very excited to receive new books. Their eyes shined of eagerness to read.
