Harvest UMC delivers books, kind words to Samoset kids

SAMOSET — Members of Harvest United Methodist Church in Lakewood Ranch teamed up with an accomplished children’s author to deliver books and notes of encouragement to students at Samoset Elementary School on Monday.

Author Sandra Markle, a Harvest member, secured more than 600 books for the students through the nonprofit organization First Book.

Harvest UMC partners with Samoset Elementary through the School District and Manatee Chamber of Commerce’s Business Partner in Education initiative. Church members volunteer to read with and mentor students, provide administrative support and encouragement to teachers and make other charitable donations to serve students’ needs.
