Wilkes Honor Society Sponsors Book Drive

The Wilkes University chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the national English honor society, is sponsoring a book drive across Luzerne County.

From now until November 20th, all books received will be donated to Ruth’s Place House of Hope, Inc. and St. Hedwig’s Veterans Home.

“As English honor society students, we have the wonderful privilege to read, to study and to compose literary works. Our main goal of the drive is to offer someone who might not have the same opportunities the same experience,” Sara Pisak, president of the Wilkes University chapter, said.

“Whether the book is new or slightly used, it is all about spreading education, giving someone a few minutes of escape from a stressful situation or instilling a love of reading in the community’s youth.”

Boxes for donations are established in the following places: Mountain Top: Kirby Library. Plymouth: Wyoming Valley West High School. Tamaqua: Marian Catholic. West Hazleton: Holy Name of Jesus Parish. Wilkes-Barre: City Hall; Wilkes University; Barnes & Noble on Public Square; Schiel’s Family Market.
