It turns out 1000+ books are quite a LOT of books.
It was so many books they had to ship by truck! They filled a pallet and weighed 840 lbs.and that’s where Pilot Freight comes into the story.

Tom Drake, the Vice President of Pilot Freight Company was extremely generous Pilot covered the freight costs in full. His exact words were:

“Yes, we certainly would be happy to help you folks out
with the freight charges for the children’s books.”
