If you're an avid reader, then Egg Harbor Township High School is where you wanted to be Saturday as a student run charity group put together a massive book sale in order to make a difference one chapter at a time.

"Chapters for Charity is the name of our used book sale and also the organization that me and my friends put together to make this book sale a reality," explained Caroline Tesone, Founder of Chapters for Charity.

This is the second year that Chapters for Charity held their annual book sale and they do it for a good reason.

As all the proceeds earned will be given away to the Alcove Center in Northfield; a center that focuses on helping grieving children and their families.

"The Alcove Center helped me personally in my time of need and I wanted to spread their message throughout our community," Tesone explained.

Raising even more books this year, Chapters for Charity is hoping to surpass last year's sales in order to help those in need.

"It's really great that everyone comes out and helps not even just the community but the cause in general is a really good cause so I'm glad all the donations are going out to it," said Chapters for Charity member Naheel Naber.

"It's nice to see so many people come out and there have been several people who gives us more money than what the books cost, so it's nice to know that they know it's going to a good cause," expressed Chapters for Charity member Morgan Schmidt.

This year's book sale has proven to be another success but as founder Caroline Tesone and the rest of the members of Chapters for Charity prepare for graduation this upcoming June, they are hoping that someone will continue what they've started for the benefit of others.

"Grief counseling is an absolutely necessary service and it's sort of a taboo subject because a lot of people don't know how to correctly deal with death and this organization does it in such a beautiful way," Tesone said.

Caroline Tesone is currently negotiating with another organization to take over the book sale next year but under different name.
