“We are proud to support the Town of Wallkill Girl Scouts and their efforts to give back to the community,” said Eric Price, General Manager of Galleria at Crystal Run. “We are excited to have them at the center this month to promote this great community project.”
“We are so excited to be hosting the Genesis Corner book giveaway at the Galleria at Crystal Run this month,” said Chareese Harper, Town of Wallkill Girl Scouts Troop Leader. “We believe that girl scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.”
“We at the town think this initiative is a wonderful opportunity for growth and connection. As the town has no official library, getting books to residents can be a challenge,” said Frank DenDanto, Town of Wallkill Supervisor “While the town hall does have a small, well trafficked set of shelves for barrowing books, getting out into the community reaches more people. This opportunity will grow a base of readers that would otherwise not have regular access to books. When books are in the hands of people society is better for it.”
