Giving in July: DONATE Books, Craft Supplies, & More all Month!

Got some stuff you don’t need anymore? Want to help out kids & teachers?
We’re collecting goods during the whole month of July!


  • Bring in new or gently used toys, books, craft materials, clothes which we’ll distribute to community centers in our area.

  • Buy a book from our display of Recommended Reading books which meet Common Core standards! We’ll take them to school libraries or to teachers to incorporate into curriculum.

  • Teachers & Educators: Let us know if there is something specific you’d like for your school and we will try to get it for you!  Check out the Common Core Graphic Novels list to see which books you might like to have in your classroom!
