August 1, 2018 (All day) to August 12, 2018 (All day)
The 7th Annual Community Book Drive will take place between August 1st and September 12th, culminating in the Book Sorting at FedEx on September 20th, the United Way’s Day of Caring. The Community Book Drive is coordinated by Hagerstown Area Religious Council, United Way of Washington County, Hagerstown Rotary Club, the Early Childhood Advisory Council (ECAC), and FedEx Ground. Last year more than 14,000 books were collected and used to set up the new Community Book Warehouse, which is distributing them to community organizations, schools and individuals to get them into the hands of vulnerable children.
Everyone can collect books! Work with your churches, civic groups, businesses, and other organizations to collect age appropriate books, specifically geared to children ages birth through eleven (elementary school).
Donated books can be new or gently used, but must be appropriate for ages birth-11.
