Monteral Harrell Climmons
Can you imagine living in a town or city were there isn't a library or community resource center? Well that's exactly what you will not find in Webb, Ms., a small rural town in Tallahatchie County, Mississippi. The population was 587 at the 2000 census. There are 225 households out of which 26.2% has children under the age of 18 living in them. (Source) From Wikipedia

Gathering of Hearts set out to collect books, art supplies, computers, printers and furniture for the upcoming library/community resource center. A very special thanks to educator Monteral Harrell-Climmons for her generous donation of books for the library. "She is a strong advocate for tutoring children in reading in Tangipahoa Parish".  As an educator her love for reading and teaching has reached beyond the boundaries of Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana. She understand if we are going to help our youth reach their success, reading is the basis fundamental to achieve that success.

When you give the gift of reading you are encouraging creativity while also enhancing reading, comprehension, communication and enrichment skills at all levels for all age groups. Her commitment to education speaks volumes in her actions. Most summers you can find her mentoring young girls through cheerleading and encouraging them to become activity in the communities they live in. If you would like to donate books, a computer, printers, art supplies to this project. Please contact Gathering of Hearts at 504.858.4658 or email us at
