GRANDVIEW, Mo. - Every third grader in Grandview's C-4 School District was given a new dictionary to help them with their homework this year.
The KC Southside Optimist Club delivered the dictionaries to give schools and handed out a total of 320 books.
Dorothy Carpenter has delivered the books before.
"One of the little third graders came up to me and hugged me and said, ‘You know, nobody has ever given me a book before,'" Carpenter said. "That made it all worthwhile."
