Portland: Children's Book Bank hosts Earth Day book drive
One of our fave local non-profits, The Children's Book Bank, is hosting a book drive for the 40th anniversary of Earth Day! I've posted about this great organization before when our service club helped spiff up a big ol' stack of books, that in turn are donated to local kids who might otherwise have NO BOOKS AT ALL in their homes. The thought of which makes me want to weep.
What an easy way to both clear out some clutter while in 'spring cleaning' mode and support a fantastic non-profit reuse organization on Earth Day. It's a win-win! Here's the scoop:
Please bring new and gently-used children's books to your local New Seasons Market April 24th to help The Children's Book Bank reach their goal of gathering 30,000 community-donated books for Portland's children in need. Other locations include Whole Foods Bridgeport and Laurelhurst. For more information please visit www.childrensbookbank.org.
