The heart of BookEnds, like any standout organization, is it's amazing Founder and President. BookEnds President, Robin Keefe has unflappable passion for improving our world. I have worked for many non profits, and this organization is truly beyond compare. BookEnds serves such a large base of children and communities in need and does so with incredible efficiency. It is a simple program that greatly impacts both leadership and literacy in our youth.
