Spanish Club hosts annual ‘Bookraiser’ for Project: Cameron’s Story

During its annual Bookraiser and Pajama Day for Project: Cameron’s Story (PCS), Schuylerville High School and Spanish Club collected books to be distributed throughout 15 NICUs in New York. Schuylerville contributed to the total 27, 158 books collected statewide! This was the district’s 4th annual Bookraiser and third year as the “Official Spanish Book Collection Site” for PCS. The high school hosts a pajama day, accepts monetary donations, and also takes orders for Scholastic books online. During its pajama day alone, 265 books were collected! The mission of Project: Cameron’s Story (PCS), a 501 c(3) public, children’s charity, is to support the bonding of parents with their premature babies in Neonatal Intensive Care Units. Often, babies admitted into NICUs are so fragile that their parents are unable to touch or hold them.  Through the efforts of PCS, each family admitted to a NICU at the following hospitals receives a book to read to their baby:

  • Albany Medical Center
  • St. Peter’s Hospital
  • Stony Brook Hospital
  • Crouse Hospital (Syracuse)
  • Golisano Children’s Hospital
  • UHS Wilson Medical Center
  • Bellevue Women’s Center
  • NY Presbyterian Stanley Morgan Hospital
  • NY Presbyterian Weil Cornell
  • John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital
  • Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital
  • North Shore Hospital
  • Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital
  • Mount Sinai West Children’s Hospital
  • The Special Care Unit at Glens Falls Hospital   

Project: Cameron’s Story was named for Cameron Quartiers – an inspirational little boy who proved that this type of bonding can have a tremendous effect on a family’s ability to bond in the most difficult of circumstances.
