UCDC Pee Wees Provide Books For The Needy

Here is a letter from the organization:

Dear UCDC “Peewee” Dance Team and Families,
I cannot begin to describe to you the excitement the children felt when they saw the display of books you provided for them. One of the little girls grabbed me and said, “You brought the books!” The children around her were saying, “Can we get one today?” Their eyes just lit up, from the youngest child to the oldest child as they stood beside the table of beautiful books and tried to decide which one they would take home to keep. One mother had her baby cradled in her arms. She asked me if she could select a book for him (as her other two children were busy looking for the books they wanted). I said, “Of course!” She picked up several books before her attention was caught by an alphabet book that was on a display stand. She said, “Can we get that one?” She was so happy to have that beautiful book and I can imagine her teaching her babies the alphabet using those colorful illustrations.

Because of privacy issues, I am unable to send you a picture of the children with their books, but I can tell you that their smiles were huge and their eyes were bright. I appreciate the generosity that your families showed to these adorable children. Maybe these books will be a catalyst to propel these children out of poverty (through books and education) and into a more gentle way of life. If nothing else, these books will provide them with wonderful adventures in their own homes!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

God Bless You,
Tabby Weston

Hebrews 13:16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

PS Girls, your bookmarks were a HUGE success. The children spent almost as much time selecting the “perfect bookmark” as they did selecting their books.
