Volunteer Duties + Expectations
Whether it's staffing for BFK Book sale, assisting at distributions or sorting books in our warehouse, we have a job for you. We particularly need volunteers who can assist with book pick-ups. A strong back and the ability to life heavy boxes are a must in order to help with pick-ups. Do you have a special skill that you'd like to lend Books for Keeps, such as bookkeeping, accounting, grant-writing, or marketing? Or maybe a group that would like to sign-up to volunteer in our warehouse? Whatever your interest or availability, please get in touch!
Sign up for volunteer opportunities on the GivePulse platform.
Hosted by Books for Keeps
Since 2009, Books for Keeps (BFK) has given more than half a million books to children from low-income families in grades Pre-K through 12. For 11 months of the year, we collect, inspect, sort, and box books, only to give them all away each May. Books we can't use are sold at our annual BFK book sale each August. Books for Keeps' primary program is a research-based effort to end "summer slide", the learning loss suffered by many children when they are away from school. Children from low-income families are disproportionately affected by this loss, often due to a simple lack of access to books.
