Blanton Elementary School held a special event for "National Kindness Day." Today, the focus was on spreading the joy of reading.
The Bookworms Literacy Program, sponsored by the Education Foundation of Odessa, provides books to children in the hope that these stories will be read at home and enjoyed with family. Part of the program is inviting community leaders to inspire children to read. That's where our officers stepped in! Copies of the books read today were all given to students.
We want to thank Blanton Elementary School for allowing us to participate in this important day. Our officers enjoyed seeing all of the smiling faces and appreciated the kindness shared with us as well!
