The Impact of Books

Two full bookcases

This week’s post is short, but for all of us at NHR, incredibly moving. This letter came to us from a book bin in Fair Haven that gets free books from NHR. We believe it is proof of the incredible power of literacy, community, and our mission.


To whom it may concern:

I have been given hours of enjoyment because of your books.

I am homeless and on the streets. It is such a pleasure to have people like yourself who go out of their way to bring pleasure to people like me.

I just wanted to thank you so much for taking the time out of your lives so that my life is made a little happier!

God bless and thank you again!

Christine
