Book donation  

Craig Birckhead-Morton

Craig Birckhead-Morton, a seventh grader at Snow Hill Middle School, recently donated more than 100 books to Berlin-based Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services, Inc.

The books were provided to help the WYFCS book drive in progress. Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services will donate the books to Books for Africa, a program helping to stock library shelves in African countries.

Birckhead-Morton met with Steven Taylor, the executive director of the Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services at the organization’s Berlin office to present the books.

He will hold his third book drive at Snow Hill Elementary School in May. He will also continue to collect books for the Berlin project.
