HUDSON -- A line of cars pulled up to the Montgomery C. Smith Elementary School Saturday morning.

Volunteers and teachers worked to fill each car with donated desks, ear buds, books and more, all thanks to the Hudson Literacy Fund.


All of the freebies went to students learning remotely, who don't have a desk at home.

Board member Ann Israel said Staples was a great partner to help pull the project off."

The gratitude was incredible because this will change things for children because it's so hard to do remote teaching/learning to begin with and this really will change things," said Israel.
