The members of the Waltham Committee over the past few years developed a unique relationship with More than Words that looks promising in so far as outreach activities for WSRC is concerned.  In meeting their needs,  Committee member Rajashree Ghosh organized several successful book drives.  For the enthusiastic Scholars at WSRC this was an opportunity to contribute books to a worthy cause.  What better way to support a local initiative that  empowers youth who are in the foster care system, court involved, homeless, or out of school to take charge of their lives by taking charge of a business!

The Committee continues to work with key individuals at More than Words. We thank Bobby Nasson, Business Development Manager for following up on each book drive and organizing quick pick ups. We certainly wish to thank the youth who prepared the box for contributions. On March 22 Bobby wrote ,

“Thanks a ton for all the donations today.
Your group always donates

out of the van.”

The Waltham Committee continues their conversation with Jennifer Stewart and Sharon Small at More than Words. In the near future we hope to participate in their “Author Series” where  WSRC Scholars can get an opportunity to showcase their work at the store.  More collaborative initiatives will follow as we work our way through the next few months.
