Meghan Costello, a Purdue senior and part of Heifer International's Purdue chapter, said the pilot was a success and hopes to see the program expand not only within Woodland but to other schools. “This program has so many wins,” said Costello. “The kids keep reading, they get to learn about global health and Heifer International gets to benefit kids overseas that are going to profit from the animals they're sending." Fourth-grader Alma Rodriguez said she read 20 books this summer. For her, helping families in other countries was a bonus. “I feel really proud,” Alma said with a smile.
