Some Darton State College students made a special delivery to the Boys and Girls Club.

Students in the Darton Servant Leadership organization donated more than 50 children's books to the club on North Jefferson Street.

Group leaders say it's important to invest in our community's youth.

"The kids are the future, and we have to realize that we must invest into them in order to secure our future,” said Allison Lewis, Darton Servant Leadership.

"It's a pleasant surprise just to be thought of in the community because there's a lot of organizations working with children in this city,” said Jason Belk, Boys and Girls Club Service Director. “So, to be thought about is definitely a blessing."

The Servant Leadership group will hold a canned food drive around Thanksgiving and will be involved in Mission Change's monthly missions.
