Beginning Nov. 30, the GW bookstore will launch a holiday book drive for Books From The Heart, an initiative of the national non-profit organization The Heart of America Foundation.
The program’s goal is to find books that aren’t being used and make sure they find their way to those in need, especially poor children and school libraries in need.
The bookstore will have a selection of children’s books at a 20 percent discount and administrators hope customers will seize the chance to donate.
“We hope to encourage our customers to purchase and donate these books to under-resourced school libraries, classrooms and directly into the hands of underprivileged children in our area,” said Tammy Rogers, assistant director of the bookstore in an email.
The drive will run through December.
