2010 Used Book Drive

On March 27th, 2010, the Giving Tree sponsored a Used Book Collection for Kids.    All of the  books were donated to the Andrea O’Donnell Children’s Trust.  This foundation is run by a woman named Lesley Lane, in memory of her daughter who was murdered in 1995.  Her daughter’s love of children and books led her down the path of stocking shelves full of books at the pediatric wards in various hospitals including Crozier-Chester Hospital.    She also fills book carts in libraries and schools in the Chester area  where resources are few and needs are many.    The helping hands of the day sorted over 1000 books to be donated in memory of her daughter.
