Kudos to Katie Simmons – a Literacy Beacon in Boston

Katie Simmons has been a long-time MagazineLiteracy.org champion in the Boston area, collecting and delivering thousands of magazines to hundreds of children and families in shelters and literacy programs.  She gives every bit of heart and soul delivering magazines out of the back of her well-traveled jeep.  At the same time, she takes a personal interest in each individual matching wonderful magazines to wonderful children and moms, and working closely with agencies to understand their needs.  She is a bright light – a beacon among beacons – for our magazine literacy work that burns around the clock.  Thank you Katie for feeding so many the knowledge and the joy that magazines deliver.
