Donation made to CDI
Approximately 1,500 canned foods recently were donated to the Cancer Dietary Initiative from the Public Library of Steubenville and Jefferson County as part of its Book-to Action program where a selected book is taken beyond discussion and put into action with related programs and a community service project. The library focused on the book, “The Chicken Runs at Midnight: A Daughter’s Message from Heaven That Changed a Father’s Heart and Won the World Series” by Tom Friend. Buckeye Local Schools donated 1,200 canned foods to PLSJ’s Dillonvale-Mount Pleasant Branch in memory of Debbie Stevens, who was a bus driver at Buckeye Local Schools and died from cancer Nov. 5. Discussing the donation at the Schiappa branch are Chris Hyland, left, of the CDI and Jennifer Cesta, the library system’s public relations coordinator.
