We have mailed 2 boxes of books (49 books total) to Appalachian Regional Ministry in Hurricane, WV so far and I just received news from the director, Bill Barker, about how the books are being used. (And if you are not a member of our church, but would like to participate in this program, please leave a comment below and I’ll be glad to share Bill’s contact information so you can send books too!)
I wanted to share his email with you to let you know how much the books are appreciated.
The books you have sent were delivered last week to HarborLight Baptist Chapel, Oceana, WV. This is a mission church that works with +/-60 children and a number of adults. Jim and Grace Davis were delighted to get the books. Jim is a retired newspaper manager in the printing department. The last company he worked prior to retirement was a small company, in his words, called USA Today. He and Grace are from Orangeburg, SC and know the value of quality reading material. They asked me to express their deepest appreciation for the books.
We will be mailing another box this month! Thanks to all of you who have donated books. Keep them coming!
