About

Since 1999, the aim of Goodwill's BookWorks program has been to get books into the hands and homes of children from disadvantaged backgrounds. In 2016, BookWorks services distributed 72,193 books to nearly 30,000 children in 7 counties in the Goodwill-Suncoast area!

Elementary Book Drop was developed to expand on the preschool reading program, in an effort to further instill a love of reading as kids moved past Kindergarten. Title 1 and/or under-performing elementary schools with D/F grades are targeted, and volunteers deliver bundles of gently-loved books for the 1st and 2nd graders.

Opportunities for volunteers to help with our Elementary Book Drop initiative exist in Marion, Hernando, Sumter, Hillsborough, Pasco, Polk, Pinellas, and Highlands counties.

All you need is a car and a willingness to deliver books during school hours. We'll set it up and give you the contact info. You could be helping kids develop a lifelong love of books!
