Troubled youth in KOTA Territory now have new books, games and movies to lift their spirits.
It's all thanks to a 13-year-old boy named Morgan Phillips. Earlier this month Phillips set out to make the youth at the Juveniles Services Center feel like someone cares. A month later, he's done just that, collecting $2,200 worth of games, books and movies.
Phillips got the idea from his mother, who took a tour of JSC and noticed the rough shape of their books. "They don't have the books that most kids have so I figured if you give a kid a new book it would make them think someone cares about them," Morgan Phillips said.
Of course Phillips would like to thank the numerous people and businesses in the community who donated to the book drive.
