Recently, we were asked if First Book's hurricane relief campaign included assistance for libraries devastated by Hurricane Wilma. Here's the scoop from the organization's corporate strategy director, Theresa Harnisch:
"Yes, books are going to victims of hurricane Wilma as well. From what I understand, it's a slightly different situation, as not as many schools and libraries were damaged as they were in the areas hit by Katrina and Rita. That said, we have distributed books to those displaced by the storm through our local advisory board, First Book-Pensacola, Communities in Schools of Northwest Florida, and FEMA and we have sent books to a number of groups that have contacted us directly."
