The Giving Spirit

In early December, Anita Brown-Graham and her husband, Phillip, co-hosted a Giving Gathering for Book Harvest and the East Durham Children’s Initiative. Book Harvest, which began three years ago, provides secondhand books to low-income children in the Triangle while EDCI strives to change the outcomes of children and families in East Durham. Ginger Young, the founder and executive director of Book Harvest, spoke passionately about the progress the organization had made. “As far as I’m concerned,” she said, “the sky’s the limit.” Guests also heard from David Reese, the president and CEO of EDCI, that if there’s improvement in East Durham’s schools, “we can change the community.” Close to $14,600 was raised, along with 8,000 books collected by Book Harvest volunteer Toonie Gayal. Guests were treated to appetizers by Bon Vivant Catering Inc. and Southern Season, as well as wine donated by Haw River Man.
