The First Christian Church, Disciples of Christ, which is located at the corner of Main Street and Lee Avenue, Weirton, is collecting new and gently used books in memory of the children of Sandy Hook School in Newtown, Conn.
The books are for pupils in kindergarten through fourth grade. "These books will be distributed to children in our community," a church spokesperson said.
Anyone wanting to contribute can contact the church at (304) 797-7300 or take books there between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
"Maybe we couldn't take food or hold someone's hand to offer comfort during this terrible tragedy, but we can donate a book and benefit children here," according to the church spokesperson.
Books will be collected until Jan. 31.
