Donate your gently used children’s books to help make a literacy night

The UFT Charter School in East New York is trying to do a book giveaway on Wednesday, March 5, 2014 to encourage students and their families to read together. The school is a Title 1, high needs school (K-8th grade, students ages 5 through 12) in East New York. Please scan your shelves for books your kids no longer need. Or buy a copy of your favorite book from when you were a young reader and mail them in. The only caution is that the nonfiction needs to be up-to-date. Also please do not donate books with underlining. The books may be sent to the address below. Book rate is extremely reasonable. Please try to mail them to arrive at the school no later than March 3rd.
