Where do the books go?

This program was started because of a challenge on a site called This is a site that challenges teens to do something to make a difference in their communities. After seeing a challenge about setting up a bookshelf for needy children my sixteen year old daughter started thinking about where she could set up a bookshelf to make the most impact.

After talking to our friends at Community Harvest, we were told that our local Rotary Club had wanted to set up a bookshelf there but they had no one to take charge of keeping the shelf filled. That is where we come in. We take between 100-150 to Community Harvest to stock the shelves. The employees there make sure that parents with young children know that their children can grab a free book before they leave.

This part of the program would not be possible if not for the help of all the amazing employees and volunteers that work the register at Community Harvest. They make sure that our books get into the hands of the kids who visit the food bank. Thank you!
