WSP team lead, Pat Yeargain stopped by the office to pickup supplies for this weekend’s prison visit. Thanks for all you do!
The ladies from the Joshua United Methodist Church in Joshua, Texas, collected 250 books for WSP! JUMC member, Iva Foster drove from Fort Worth to Austin to deliver the books with a little help from her husband and grand kids! They enjoyed learning more about our program, as well as a brief tour of our office.
The books are targeted primarily for preschool children, and many are printed in both English and Spanish.
Thank you for your generosity and continued support.
WSP volunteer, Becky S. attended a writer’s conference last week and received a box of children’s books for WSP from Arte Publico Press in Houston. The editor, Gabriela Boeza Ventura of Arte Publico Press was on the panel. Becky inquired about books in Spanish and told the editor about WSP. Ms. Ventura was moved by our program and decided to make a book donation. The books are bilingual – they are in both Spanish and English.
Great job Becky, thanks for sharing!
