February 13, 2020—It didn’t take long for James Flanagan and students to spring into action with an idea for a book drive. Flanagan is a teacher at Centre Hastings Secondary School and wanted to do something to help the people in quarantine at CFB Trenton due to coronavirus.

His first idea to donate used books needed a bit of adjustment due to the possibility of contamination. That didn’t stop him. He contacted Chapters (Belleville) to explore options.

The result? A donation of 91 books for all ages. Flanagan picked them up and delivered on February 12, 2020.

Thank you to James and Chapters (Belleville) for their caring actions.
