TROTWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) - The Point, the Trotwood campus of Ginghamsburg Church, donated 10,000 children's story books to The Early Learning Center in Trotwood.
Saturday, more than 25 church volunteers worked side-by-side with Trotwood's ELC principal and teachers to sort, register, and pack the thousands of books.
The book sorting event took place at The Point Church on 506 East Main Street in Trotwood.
Trotwood's ELC currently owns about 2,000 library books but has space for thousands more. The Point's gift will make a difference in the lives of students.
Principal Martin explained, "Here at the Early Learning Center, we are trying to get books into the hands of our students. Children report that they do not own books at home and don't go to the public library. Every student is asked to read 30 minutes nightly. When The Point contacted us and asked how they could support our school, I told them about the school's need for books."
The Point Children's Ministry Coordinator Tiffaney Taylor hopes students will develop a love for reading as they receive the books. She said, "I love reading to my boys, and I know what a gift books are to children. Developing a love for reading at an early age is a recipe for life-long learning and success for kids in Trotwood."
