On behalf of Wyoming Food For Thought and the library I’d like to thank everyone who took the time to donate a new book to our book drive. We received over 500 children’s books — far surpassing our goal of 400! Thanks to your generosity each holiday food bag will come with a book. In addition the extra books, toys, and food that we also collected will be distributed by WY Food For Thought to children in need throughout Natrona County.

In no particular order, I’d especially like to thank the following people or organizations for their significant contributions:

  • Zachary Pullen
  • Don Stagg and the Tate Museum
  • Lisa Icenogle (for the press release that tipped us past 400 books)
  • Lisa and Rich Fujita
  • Elaine Hough and the American Association of University Women (AAUW)
I’d also like to thank those library staff and student workers who helped with the book drive, or who volunteered time outside of work at Food For Thought:
  • Sarah Mailoux
  • Guy Harris
  • Danica Sveda
  • Devon Holthus
Lastly, significant credit goes to Amber Olson for developing, coordinating, and promoting the book drive. Without her passion for the project, as well as her ability to keep us all on task, we’d have never met our goal.
