Starting in February, St. Andrew’s after school program, known as “Watch” began collecting books to bless our neighbors at Whittier Elementary in Costa Mesa. Over 125 books and $150 dollars were raised to expand Whittier’s current collection. Titles included good reads like, When you Look Up at the Moon, About Reptiles, Fancy Nancy, Knuffle Bunny and others. The resources will complement an ongoing effort to update Whittier Elementary’s school library so that the facilities reflect the high value that Whittier staff and students place on reading proficiency.
Many thanks to the generous students, parents and Watch staff that made this effort possible and helped to live out St. Andrew’s mission of Following Jesus Christ to lead lives that reveal God’s goodness!
