YWCA of South Hampton Roads Book Drive

$1,000 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 19 people in 2 months
Last year over 450 children stayed in our local YWCA emergency shelters, and I’m on a mission to help provide the children who stay there with a variety of quality, engaging, and educational books.

They are desperately in need of books for the children who come to the facility to seek refuge and shelter.

This book drive will give these children something new that’s just for them, while also contributing to their general education. My goal is to get a special book to every child who comes into the YWCA.

The book would provide as a distraction during the difficult time that they are going through. Imagine a child cuddled up with his/her mom, reading a book together, while being surrounded by safety and comfort.

With Usborne Books & More’s “Literacy for a Lifetime” program, each donation will receive a 50% match. Your tax-deductible donation of just $25 can get at least 4 high quality books into the hands of our local kids in crisis. Any amount you have to give would help greatly!

**Any business that donates $100 or more will receive a personal thank you on my personal Facebook page!

Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
