Students, staff bolster 'Books for the Brain' at Burnside
It started with a box and a hand-written sign.
The box sat in the teachers’ lounge at Burnside Elementary School with a sign that said “books for the food shelf.”
Neil Lahammer, third-grade teacher at Burnside, saw an opportunity and ran with it.
Lahammer asked his class if they would be willing to donate some books to the Red Wing Area Food Shelf and within a week and a half, 250 books were waiting to be delivered.
