SEARCH PROJECT

We donated over 300 books to SEARCH to stock their new library.  Thanks to Friends board member Kay & Rick Burns, also members of The Bellaire United Methodist Church’s Community Outreach Group who we partnered with on this project.  I’m told the staff & residents were very excited to see all of the new books.  Below is a photo of the new library at SEARCH; more than half of the books you see were donated by us.  For more information about this organization, visit http://www.searchhomeless.org/programs/house/
