Thanks to Dell volunteers Andrew Northcutt, Joshua Foo, and Jessica Lam for helping August 14.

Love to hear Dell community volunteers laugh and exclaim as they prepare books: “I read this when I was a kid!” “This was one of my favorite books!” There aren’t words to express our gratitude. Over many years, endless volunteers have typed labels used on pockets and cards so Ugandan students can borrow. Especially nice is that many return over and over.
