Hometown Hero;Primrose School

Posted: Updated:

Children in Richardson are learning about giving, sharing and caring.

The children at Primrose School of Breckenridge Park in Richardson are always ready for a story, especially about green eggs and ham.

The pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students love books and are making sure other kids have books as well.

Primrose students have made donations to support pets, fight hunger, help children at Christmas, and help victims of domestic violence. They are reaching out again with books.

The school's hallways are lined with creatively decorated boxes holding hundreds of new books for the young patients of the Plano Medical Clinic.

"They're really learning how to give back to our community, understanding that there are people outside of their home school and direct connection that might need some ," said Primrose School Executive Director, Tanya Uvence.

The beneficiary of the books is a non-profit which treats uninsured children or those on Medicaid or the Children's Health Insurance Program.

"It will provide a platform for our doctors and our nurses to talk to not only the children but their families about the importance of education, reading, and literacy," said Plano Medical Clinic's Janet Davis.

Last year the children made a book donation of 600 books. This week, they will donate more than 1,000 new books.
