United Way of the Wine Country Launches 2018 Children’s Book Drive
Written by admin, March 1st, 2018   

United Way of the Wine Country

It’s partnerships like these that make our service great! The Free Bookmobile is once again one of the primary beneficiaries of United Way’s annual Children’s Book Drive, which will allow us to boost our book volume and quality ahead of the important summer giving season. We are now giving away more than 50,000 books each year, so help with collections is a crucial component of our operation. You can easily participate — just bring the books your kids have finished to any of the participating locations below during the month of March! We are looking for both English and Spanish/Bilingual material in good condition, and of course the more recent/relevant, the better. Here’s additional information from United Way, including contact information if you would like to go above and beyond being a donor:

United Way Women United is proud to present the United Way Children’s Book Drive. During the book drive, community members rally in support of education and childhood literacy by donating new and gently used English and Spanish children’s books. Books are collected during the drive and distributed to kids for free through United Way’s education initiatives and the Free Bookmobile of Sonoma County, Sonoma County Human Development, Guerneville School, and Roseland Elementary.  Women United has committed to make a difference in early childhood education in our community, and with your help, we can give all kids a chance to learn and be successful throughout school and life.

Join us to get free books to our area’s kids!  The magic begins as kids choose their books and young minds are opened up to possibilities and worlds which come alive through words on the pages. We need your support to rewrite the story of education for so many in the community.
