It’s time to save the date for 2017 Books for Keeps distributions, and this year is our biggest yet! With help from our wonderful volunteers, we’ll be giving away nearly 75,000 books to more than 6,000 children at a record 15 schools in Athens, Atlanta, Warrenton, and Elberton. This is your chance to experience the joy of students eager to pick out 12 free books for summer- and for keeps!
School-specific volunteer shifts will be scheduled in March, and we will announce when they have been finalized. If you are an individual who would like to volunteer at a specific school, please mark your calendar!
If you are part of a group (8 to 15 people) that would like to adopt and work an entire shift at a particular school or on a specific day, please email Louis Crow to reserve a shift for your group.
