Giles/Pulaski Christmas Store Book Drive

Book Drive The NRCC Multi-Cultural Club and International Education committee at NRCC celebrated international education week during November 2010. We donated 942 books to the Giles and Pulaski Christmas stores.  Books were either donated or paid for with monetary donations or funds raised through a bake sale and raffle.   Members collected over 20 prizes from local business to raffle.  Monetary donations were obtained by standing in front of the Fairlawn Wal-Mart and the Pearisburg Food Lion on two different Saturdays. Total funds raised were $840.00.  Members made several book buying trips to seek out the best book deals.
