Over the past few months, employees at Barnes & Noble Booksellers in Reno organized a book drive among thousands of holiday shoppers. Customers donated a total of 2,200 books to elementary school students in our community. Earlier this week, store employees presented 1,100 to students at Echo Loder Elementary School, and another 1,100 books to students at Hidden Valley Elementary School!
In addition, Paul Stowell, senior vice president of City National Bank, and Carolyn Rodriguez, vice president and program administrator of marketing for City National Bank, presented each school with a check for $3,000 to be used to support school activities.
We join our school families in expressing our gratitude to Barnes & Noble and City National Bank for their generous donations to our students! Thank you!
