Sigma Tau Delta Book Drive a Success

Members of Wilkes University’s chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the national English honor society, gathered 2,033 books to donate to Ruth’s Place House of Hope, Inc. and St. Hedwig’s Veterans Village in a book drive.

Books were collected from locations in Mountain Top, Tamaqua, Hazleton, Plymouth and Wilkes-Barre. Major contributors included Wilkes-Barre City Hall, the Weatherly Library, the Whitehall Public Library and the Kirby Library in Mountain Top.

Chapter President Sara Pisak called the book drive a success, and said the sheer volume collected, “affords us the opportunity to reach many more deserving people through the power of the written word."
