Service Day: Texas – Book Drive

During the month of April, The Rosendin Foundation's Texas locations collected and delivered books to support BookSpring.
The Rosendin Foundation

During the month of April, all of our Texas locations, both field and offices, dropped off books in collection bins at offices and jobsites. In total we collected 553 books to donate! This now annual book drive has a trophy for the team that collected the most books to win and have the bragging rights. We also had little trophies for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers to keep for the memories.

Please join us in congratulating Rosendin’s Dallas jobsite teams for collecting 322 books and winning the bragging rights for the year. In second place, please applaud Rosendin’s Renewable team at the Cottonwood site for collecting 91 books. In third place, please applaud Rosendin’s Temple Data Center team for collecting 80 books. The field clearly outperformed our office and MPS manufacturing teams in the donation drive by a landslide!

Volunteer extraordinaire Barbara King joined staff President Jolsna Thomas, Operations Manager Hope Piernick and Sr Administrative Assistant to drop off all 533 books to BookSpring’s South Austin drop-off site. This was the last Service Day that Barbara organized for us. We can’t wait to see all the amazing things she will continue to do for our community!

Next month our TRF Camp Build Austin returning campers will be building and staining bookcases for BookSpring and they and our volunteers will bring in treasured books to donate.
