A burn of determination for 2017

A burn of determination for 2017

When I originally sat down to write this year-in-review post, I was ready for the victory lap. From our number of volunteers and completed service hours to the new partnerships and projects to our funding and staff increases, 2016 was our best year ever as organization. But as I poured over the numbers, documents and photos, my pride quickly became replaced with something quite different.

Go Local Interactive at Reach Out and Read

On Friday, February 19, 2016 employees from Go Local Interactive volunteered at Reach Out and Read. Go Local's Melanie Thaden gave a quick rundown afterwards:

"The team that did go said they had an amazing time! They worked in the main office labeling books and between the five of them, they labeled and boxed 4,200 books in two hours, which is pretty impressive. The team is very excited about this organization and wants to continue to help them out! I am going to help them host a book drive in our office during Reach Out and Read's Annual Hooked on Books fundraiser, so we are really excited about that too!"
