Were you or a friend able to make it out to book distributions this year?  We’re so grateful to you for being a part of the story. And there are always opportunities to be involved. We want to share with you seven additional ways you can support and stay involved with Books for Keeps:

  • Complete our volunteer survey here and tell us about your experience. We want to know what we’re doing well and how we can do better as we work to reach more children together!
  • Tell 10 people about Books for Keeps and the magic you witnessed with us! Leverage your social media networks by sharing our Facebook page or Twitter and Instagram feeds.
  • Give, and invite two other people to give. The cost to sponsor a child is just $30 – or $600 to sponsor a classroom. And we can do so much with any amount in between! We have new monthly giving options available through our website so you can stretch your impact across the whole year. Now is a critical time for us, as we close out our fiscal year-end on June 30 and pay all final bills on the books we gave away!
  • Check for matching donation programs through your employer. Many companies will double your donation.
  • Rate us on greatnonprofits.org and share your story of joy, excitement, and the magic of reading with fellow volunteers across Athens. (You can also review us on Facebook!)
  • Host a book drive through your church, civic group, or business. Any books, for children or adults, that we can’t use in our program go to our annual BFK Book Sale.
  • Sign up for our newsletter to keep up with us throughout the year, learn about other ways to support our efforts or volunteer, and stay in the loop about next year’s distributions.

Thank you again for generously sharing your time with Books for Keeps. Together, we were able to give away nearly 74,000 books during a three-week period to over 6,000 students. Our program would not be possible without your support. And your support means the world to us and to the children whose lives we are touching- 12 books at a time.
