One of the programs we are able to help support along with Santa Clara Rotary is the Steps 4 Success program.
This event happens near the beginning of the school year, and it gives children shoes, socks, goodie bags, and their favorite books!
We usually give the kids a choice of one book. This time I handed out maybe 5 extra books to parents who were leaving with a little sadness in their hearts because they recalled a book from their childhood that their own child didn’t pick. Their faces LIT UP! Yay! Success! One lady left with tears in her eyes. She was truly happy. – Hilda Lopez, Librarian
