LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Lufkin's First Baptist Church and Nacogdoches' Austin Heights Baptist Church are currently collecting books that will be taken on a mission trip over spring break.
The books will go with the churches to South Texas where they will be given out to children at a free book fair.
"So there is a ministry down there where the children will get to build, decorate, paint, and put stickers on their book shelf," First Baptist Youth Minister Walker McWilliams said. "We bring books and they have a book fair."
The churches are collecting the new or gently used books until March 9.
