Through the Books in Homes USA program and Watson Land Company’s sponsorship this year, Catskill and Dominguez schools received 3,724 brand-new books. Elementary school-age children get to choose among hundreds of titles to own as part of their own personal library—at no cost to them. Watson Land Company team members love to engage children at Books in Homes USA events as they flip through the book’s crisp pages and delight in their colorful pictures. Their smiles warm our hearts—a gentle reminder that any small act can have a significant impact. We are so blessed to have the opportunity to not only financially support Books in Homes USA’s very worthwhile program and to shake hands with the quiet heroes behind this life-changing organization.Read More
