We can certainly say that, in some little way, we have been of assistance to our black students, but we could not have done it without the support and commitment of our corporate and individual donors.

Thank you QBMA!

It's a great and wonderful way to help those who are in need. As we all know, the cost of books can be very expensive. This is my way of saying thank you to the QBMA; I am grateful for the help they provided Tiffany in an needful time. Thank you very much once again. Keep up the good work!
