CUP and KNHS Libraries refreshed with books from Glenbard West High School
In 2023, the J15 School Club of City University of Pasay (CUP) and Kalayaan National High School (KNHS) collaborated on a book donation project with Glenbard West High School District 87 in Glen Ellyn, Illinois 87, in April 2023. The handpicked hardcover books were a mix of teenage novels and fiction.
The books were packed in a Balikbayan Box and shipped to the Philippines via Golden EZ Cargo. Sending it felt like forever, but after a five-month wait, the books finally made it.
When the shipment arrived, school professors Mr. Jon Solangon and J15 CUP School Club President, Kate Camonias, received the educational items and endorsed them to Dean Melvin Crisostomo from CUP College of Student Affairs.
The other books are yet to be received by KNHS school officials.
Altogether, around 54 books were added to the CUP Library, and another set of books is yet to arrive. We expect a total of 200 books. Kudos to all involved in this great initiative!
