Woman collects 'Books for the Troops'

"Right now, I primarily do it alone [out of my garage] and I have two volunteers who help me carry boxes. I want to develop a community or group of people where I can bounce ideas off and do similar fundraising and spread the word," said Keegan. "I would like this to continue, even if I can no longer do it, because I think its so important."

One last wish, Keegan said, is for some more space.

"It's probably an impractical dream, but I'd really like someone to volunteer some space because when I get new shipments of books in, the car moves out of the garage and I can't get it back I until I go through them all. The piles keep getting higher and higher," said Keegan.

The collection box is in the front lobby of town hall near the reception desk. Donations can be sent to Operation Adopt A Soldier Inc, 4281 Route 50, Saratoga Springs, N.Y. 12866. For more information about Books for Troops, Keegan can be contacted at 373-4939.
