Books for Development

  • 6 people are interested

Host a book drive for Books for Development. Collect books from your family, friends, place of business, etc and bring them down to the warehouse at 3709 Polk St. on any Saturday morning between 9am and noon. If you can sort the books by subject that would be great as well. We are happy to provide service hours to students needing volunteer hours. You just need to document the hours you spend collecting, sorting, boxing, and transporting the books to the warehouse.
