The United Methodist Preschool was recently the recipient of a collection of stories based on the theme of kindness and caring.

The books were donated by New Canaan Community Foundation through the Young Philanthropists Fund. On Oct. 3, Cynthia Gorey, executive director of NCCF, presented the books to the school and read a story from the collection to the five day 4's class. These books will become part of a permanent book borrowing program. The children will have the opportunity to share these special stories at school and at home with their families.
