Community Spirit Award Honoree

We are thrilled to honor Town School for Boys with this year’s Community Spirit Award.

From March 6 – March 17, 2023, 66 Town School students read over 37,000 pages and raised over $21,000 for Raphael House families!

We are grateful for the hard work of Town School students, who went to school early to brainstorm, plan, and execute the read-a-thon. Alongside Town School’s incredible librarians, the student-run committee of K-8 students led the promotion and participation in the read-a-thon to ensure it’s incredible fundraising success. Thank you to everyone involved; your dedication is an inspiration and true embodiment of Community Spirit!
