The holidays came early to students in Clover Park School District, who received 7,457 donated books from Operation Homefront, valued at approximately $55,000.
Operation Homefront, an organization dedicated to providing emergency financial and other assistance to the families of service members, received the brand-new books from Scholastic. Clover Park schools were selected to receive the books based on the district’s large population of military-connected students.
District operations staff picked up more than two pallets of assorted books and district librarians and volunteers sorted and repacked the books for distribution to elementary and middle schools.
