The Newburgh Enlarged City School District’s Balmville Elementary School was recently announced as the recipient of a $500 Target grant, as part of Target’s Reading and Education Program.

Target’s Ruth Delacruz and Amanda Piebes graciously surprised teachers by delivering the donation during a staff meeting on September 1, 2011. The grant will be used to supply the library with new books for all grade levels. In addition to the grant, Target also donated community-volunteer hours from Target team members which will be used to help stock the library shelves in the coming weeks.
