Since 2007, members of the North Little Rock Women’s Club have partnered with The Dictionary Project to provide dictionaries and thesauri to students in North Little Rock School District. Over the years, these ladies have donated over 8,900 books to local third graders.
Here is one of many letters of appreciation received by the club:
Thank you very much for giving us these student dictionaries. You are good people for thinking about us. Now the teachers can keep their dictionaries nice. Everyone in my class loves them and always looks at them. And probably everyone in 3rd grade loves them! We are very grateful to have good people like you.
