Textbook Donation

Posted: Updated:
BOSSIER CITY, La -

 

 

This morning Bossier schools and "Tango Transport" paid it forward.

The two joined forces to send about 7,000 textbooks to the school district in Moore, Oklahoma.

That's the area ravaged by an F-5 tornado last month. 

Textbooks as well as teacher materials that were no longer being used by Bossier schools were boxed up this morning.

Numerous elementary school teachers and resource center employees prepared the books for shipment and say its fulfilling to be able to give back.

    The Military's Search for 1 little boy ends in Shreveport. Serious men with a serious mission, and a seriously great sense of humor. Airmen and soldiers serving in Afghanistan found laughter in difficult times, all courtesy of 4 little words in a letter from a school child – “Hope you make it. – Gavin” The troops wanted to meet the young man who inspired them so much. We'll have the story, and the touching meeting, tonight at 6 pm on KTBS 3.
