A girl who gets it

From the banks of the Mississippi River comes a heart-warming story of a girl seeking to improve the lives of others through the gift of books:

When St. Peter's 6th grader, Kristin Martin, heard about Cheerful Home's shortage of kids books, she decided to take matters into her own hands and organize a book drive.
Kristin's goal is to collect 500 books. She says her love of reading combined with the mission of her school, inspired her to make a difference

"I think reading is a great way to get away and just be in your little quiet zone and go on adventures without having to go anywhere...Our motto here at St. Peter's in go make a difference so I thought I would go make a difference," says St. Peter's School 6th Grader Kristin Martin.

If you would like to donate new or gently used books suitable for ages infant to 12, you can drop them off at St. Peters School, Cheerful Home Child Care Center or in the St. Peter's Cafeteria when the church has coffee and donuts this Sunday. Any cash donations will be used to buy new books [more].
If you can, please help her in her efforts to provide more books.
