This spring 7th and 8th grade students from Riverside Jr. Sr. High School completed a class read on the book, I Will Always Write Back : How One Letter Changed Two Lives, by Catilin Alifirenka, Martin Ganda and Liz Welch. The book tells the true story about a girl, Caitlin from Hatboro,PA , who wrote a pen pal letter in 7th grade as a class assignment to Martin, a boy in Zimbabwe. What unfolded was a remarkable friendship that remains to this day. Caitlin and her family were instrumental in providing financial assistance and support to get Martin to come to the US to attend Villanova University. Martin and his family opened Caitlin's eyes to the world around her and showed her how one act of kindness can really save a family from poverty. The students at Riverside held a skype with Caitlin who is now married with two children and living outside of Philadelphia. She gave the class updates on Martin Ganda who lives and works in New York City. Three girls from Mrs. Taylor's 7th grade reading class decided to hold a spring food drive among the 7th-8th grade in honor of Martin and Caitlin. They collected around 200 food items that will be donated to the Moosic Assembly of God Food Pantry to help out local families in need.
