Hospital Employees Participate in Red Raiders Book Drive

Red Raiders Lending Library VolunteersMarch 10, 2015 - Leominster, MA - HealthAlliance Hospital Employees participated in the Red Raiders Lending Library Book Drive in late February and donated over 400 books to Pre-Kindergarten through 8th Grade students in the Fitchburg Public School System and will be used in one of the classroom lending libraries.  These classroom libraries provide the students with easy access to fun, enjoyable books that will capture their interest and turn them into lifelong readers.  When kids have a steady access to books that they want to read, they become stronger, more capable readers, with opportunities to achieve more – in school and in life.
