Your generous and kind donation of books has been received with great love and appreciation. The books will benefit our pupils and their teachers in the preschool section, our student teachers, and our lecturers. Thank you, Sister Rose Marie Mozzaachio, your generous contribution will change many lives. Our gratitude also goes to Sisters Babette Opferman and Mary Helen  Slavinskas who helped prepare and ship the books."
