Book drive

Too many books taking up too much room at home?

This week you can do something about it—and help benefit local kids in need!

First Book, a nonprofit organization, has teamed up with the Veterans of Foreign Wars, SunTrust Bank and SunTrust Mortgage to host a book drive in Washington , DC up through this Sunday, September 23rd. The drive will enable First Book to achieve its mission of providing children in low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first new books. Social venture company Better World Books will sell the books online and First Book will use the proceeds to bring thousands of new books to children in need in the DC community.

Between now and this Sunday, September 23rd, you can drop off your used books at DC SunTrust locations, or, if you don’t live in the area, donate them by following the instructions on our webpage: This site also provides guidelines on which kinds of books are most helpful.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you,
