Donate Childrens' Books in Memory of the Steinberg Family

steinbergFriends of the Steinberg family have organized a children’s book drive in their memory. They are collecting new and gently used books appropriate for children in grades one to five to benefit the Reading Buddies After School Program, an afterschool club at SHS that pairs high school volunteers with elementary school children through JCY Westchester Community Partners. Volunteers work with the younger children on homework and academic skills and these mentoring sessions often develop into strong bonds.

Members of Irene Steinberg’s bookclub decided to host the drive as Irene was a big reader and her son Zach founded the Reading Buddies club.

The five members of the Steinberg family, Irene, Bruce, Zachary, William and Matthew of Scarsdale passed away in a tragic plane accident in Costa Rica on December 31, 2017.

Book donations can be left at Greenacres Elementary School, steinberglogoWestchester Reform Temple and Scarsdale High School (Brewster Road entrance) from April 10-20.

Please contact steingbergbookdrive@gmail.com with any questions.
