These photos were taken at evacuation centers during Hurricane Matthew. We gave all of the children staying in each of the four Red Cross evacuation centers in Macon books. Approximately 100 books for children of all ages were selected by these children. We were told by staffers at the evacuation centers that these books were such a blessing to the families. Parents read the books to the children at night to comfort them.
