Sixth Annual Greater Hartford Holiday Book Drive
December 2 – 22, 2019
Change a child’s life this holiday season
Many children in Greater Hartford’s lower-income neighborhoods don’t have a single book to call their own… and it impacts their school performance. Your gift to the Holiday Book Drive opens up a whole new world of discovery, imagination and possibility for a local child in need.
Donated books should be:
- For grades pre-K through 4
- Hardcover or paperback, new or very lightly used
- General interest (non-religious)
- Spanish-English bilingual books are welcome
