A book and puzzle drive is being sponsored by the Shepherd High School FCCLA as part of Child Abuse Prevention Month. Items collected will be given to abused and neglected children in San Jacinto County, possibly at the time of removal from their home or when receiving services at Children's Safe Harbor in Coldspring. Items suggested by Child Protective Services include children's reading books and picture books; coloring books and crayons; word search and crossword books; mind teaser books; and puzzles for children of all ages. The Book and Puzzle Drive begin Monday and will continue through Tuesday, April 18. The third period class with the most items donated will receive homemade cookies or brownies of their choice.
