The donation was 100% of the estimated proceeds of U.S. sales of Apprentice Swordceror during the 5 day period the school held their annual Book Fair (rounded up).
Another recent donation was $200 to the Fruitland High School library.

The Hollaway family was also presented with the Fruitland School District's annual 'Friend of Education' award. The nomination was based on time volunteered in the Elementary library, with the PTO as Box-Top Co-Chairs, and the library donations.
