We recently had our biggest week for book donations so far: 291,702 books! Here is a look at where all those books went during the week ending on October 4th.
- Feed The Children, IN
(Feed the Children is one of our major donation partners for Book for Book™.)
- WNIT Public TV
- Feed The Children, OK
- Christian Resource International, MI
- Books Between Kids, TX
(You might remember Books Between Kids from a huge donation project last March in which we sent an 18-wheeler full of books to be given away to kids in low-income neighborhoods.)
- Charter School of the Dunes, IN
- Hamilton School, IN
- Brunswick Literacy Council, NC
- Truck Pull event—South Bend, IN
(We participated in an event in which attendees filled a tote bag full of books to take home. At the end of the day, we had nothing left but empty boxes—what a great feeling!)
- Kaiser Foundation of Salem, OR
As you may already know, we donate a book to a nonprofit organization for every used book purchased from BetterWorldBooks.com—that’s the Book for Book™ promise. Thanks to your support, we hope to break this record again in the future… and again, and again.
