KPMG donated 4,500 books this week to students at Thomas L. Marsalis Elementary.
Each student picked out three books that they took home with them heading into the winter break.
“We are working hard to make sure we foster a love of reading in all our students, and this donation today is going to help us meet those efforts,” said Marsalis Elementary Principal Kimberly Richardson.
Debbie Ozanus, KPMG national co-chair for family literacy, said the annual book donation can make a notable impact on the students.
“We at KPMG feel so strongly about being involved in our community, especially our children because we feel that literacy and reading are the backbone to education and is something that will stay with them for life,” Ozanus said.
