Grand­mom would like to give boy, 9, books, back­pack

Times-Record - - Front Page -

Tim loves to read, to him it’s an ad­ven­ture or a place to run­away from the prob­lems of the world. His teacher says he has read ev­ery book in the li­brary and each of the books in her class­room at least twice.

Tim is only 9 years old and is a fe­ro­cious reader with an ap­petite for the ad­ven­tures he loves to read about. He car­ries his fa­vorite books around with him wher­ever he goes in his well-loved, well-worn back­pack.

Tim lives with his grand­mother Lucy and says he has loved to read since a young age. Lucy would love to pro­vide him with new books to read and a back pack to hold all his new ad­ven­tures in.

Lucy raises and cares for Tim on her own and finds it hard to sup­ply him with ev­ery­thing he needs es­pe­cially school sup­plies. She wants to en­cour­age his love of read­ing but says “gro­ceries and lights come first.” Lucy asks for help so that she can pur­chase Tim new school sup­plies, a back­pack and a few new books.
