City church donating hundreds of books


Members of Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, 5603 N. Charles St., will donate hundreds of books today to the Lillian Jones Police Athletic League Center in West Baltimore, a police spokesman said.

Robert W. Weinhold Jr. said the books will arrive about 4 p.m. at the center at 1310 N. Stricker St.

"The generosity of the church's membership cannot be overstated. The donated books will be used to further promote reading programs at the PAL center as we continue to stress the importance of education to Baltimore's young people," said Col. Alvin Winkler, head of the Police Department's Youth Bureau.
