Sydney Jeffs

Book Harvest

Volunteer for 3 years

A senior at Durham Academy, Sydney Jeffs is passionate about the importance of books. For the past three years, she has spent hours every week making sure that children in our community have attractive, age-appropriate books in their own homes. Since first learning about Book Harvest, Sydney has become deeply involved in their work: She picks up books, sorts them, delivers them, revamps donation bins and signs and runs book donation stations. 

She also organized a Teen Club and inspired her classmates to help. A natural leader, Sydney leads through quiet example. She has enabled many others to step up and join in the effort in meaningful ways. Her exceptional commitment and dedication to the cause of improving literacy has made a real difference in the lives of Durham’s children. 

Thank you, Sydney Jeffs, for devoting your time to such important and life-changing work!
