Book drive in conjunction with West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2017

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 11, 2017

Today we’re spotlighting the donation drives that have been organized in connection with West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day this year. First: A book drive to benefit schools:

One of the easiest ways to motivate students to read and learn is to have books with topics that kids are excited about reading and learning from! Your donated books will make a difference! Over the past three years, West Seattle schools received more than 5,000 books for motivating and exciting students as an important part of education.

We will donate religious-theme books to religious schools in West Seattle, and elderly books to Providence. We don’t want violent or sexual-themed books.

West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day is a tremendous source of books. We are asking people who have left-over books from their yard sale this May 13th (as well as anyone who has excess books), to please donate your books to West Seattle schools. And for those who donated in the past, Thank you!

You can drop off books at any of these locations through May 26th.
