Sort 120,000 Donated Books for Kids!
Literacy Mid-South's affiliate partner, First Book Mid-South, is excited to announce that 120,000 children's books are being donated to children in Title 1 schools in Memphis! Once each truck arrives at the designated Shelby County Schools warehouse, we will need volunteer help to sort the books into appropriate age/grade levels.
Volunteers are needed to help with this huge undertaking during these times:
Truck 1 (40,000 books)
Truck 2 (40,000 books)
Truck 3 (40,000 books)
We need about 30 volunteers for each shift. Ideally, First Book Mid-South would like volunteers who are able and available for a 4-hour shift but will gladly take a volunteer who has 2 hours to give. Water and snacks will be provided.
To register, follow the steps below:
Thanks so much for helping us bring new books to children who have few or none of their own.
