Henderson Ford and business partners Steinmiller Insurance, A Different Point of View, Omero’s Custom Ltd., Webster Chamber Health Insurance Service and Edge Advertising Group have been collecting books since July for the Rochester City School students of Helen Barrett Montgomery School.
The school is located on Seneca Avenue in Rochester. Students at the school have relocated from 33 countries and speak 21 different languages including Swahili, Burmese and Arabic.
The efforts of the business and local communities have totaled the largest book collection for the six years of the book drive. Henderson Ford delivered the books on Oct.12 during the School 50, Helen Barrett Montgomery open house.
“Thank you to our business partners and everyone within the community who donated to our annual drive,” said Henderson Ford President Randy Henderson. “We are proud of this year’s collection and are excited to bring the books to the students. Their reactions and passion for reading keep this annual event going each year.”
