Charity group donates 26,000 books to students

A charity group in eastern Texas collected more than 26,000 books and donated them to local students. The group — calling themselves Book Buddies — donated so many books to local grade schools that each student was able to take six books home with them.

The used books were collected — and then sorted and boxed and delivered — by volunteers.

And now, thanks to the hard work of the Book Buddies volunteers, those books are in the hands of kids who will be able to have fun reading and keeping their minds sharp over summer vacation.



Chris Berg

Chris was born in Webster City and raised in Charles City. As a young kid, he would always be caught singing along to songs on the radio. He says he's good at karaoke but we think otherwise. ;) In his free time, he enjoys beginning new projects at home and hardly ever finishing them. Chris lives in Charles City with his wife Vicki, daughter Brynlee and son Jaxon.
