Ochillo.
Cultural Care Au Pair and St. Mary’s Academy agreed that if the school was able
to secure a structure for the library, Kids First would help them build an elementary
book collection so the students could return their focus to reading and learning.
Mission trips by Cultural Care Au Pair staff and volunteers helped get the school
ready to receive a collection of books once the money was raised. Grassroots
efforts hosted by Kids First and Cultural Care Au Pair then raised $20,000 for the
new collection.
Cadell and her colleagues recently visited St. Mary’s while in New Orleans for
a meeting of Cultural Care’s worldwide management team, at which the staff was
able to be present for the arrival of the library’s new books and to help prepare
the library for student use. Cadell and her colleagues got the new books ready
by adding spine labels, bar codes and book plates; helping decorate the library
with framed posters and a “cozy corner;” and reading their favorite stories to the
students.
