Church collects nearly 400 books in campaign

The First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) located at the corner of Lee Avenue and Main Street, Weirton, has collected nearly 400 books in memory of the children of the Sandy Hook School in Connecticut.

The books geared to pupils in grades kindergarten through four, have been distributed to children in the local community by being placed in the E Z Care waiting rooms for reading, for the Table of Hope at the First United Methodist Church during food distribution, to children at the Christian Center, to the Lighthouse and also will be available to children during the community food distribution at the First Christian Church on March 21.

“First Christian thanks all those who so generously donated new and gently used books,” a project spokesperson said.
