New book nook at the Salvation Army

Students at Pioneer built the DeWald Center's new book nook in memory of Randy Moritz, an Altrusa member who passed away last year.

A book nook has been unveiled to become a place for children to cozy up to a good book at the Dewald Community Center of The Salvation Army.

A handcrafted, solid oak book nook was dedicated to the memory of Mansfield resident Randy Moritz, a valued member of Altrusa.

Altrusa is an international nonprofit organization making the Mansfield community better through service, literacy, fundraising and international projects each year.

Moritz spent countless hours at the Dewald Center sharing her passion for literacy and love of books. She passed away in 2021.

The handmade reading bench started with an idea between Altrusa and the Dewald Center staff. That idea was presented to Jeremiah Howe, career tech supervisor at Pioneer Career and Technology Center, and with a combination of departments, students created the bench.
