Children’s Book Drive
Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich
Annual Book Drive: October 2021
Each October, as part of Greenwich Reads Together, the Alliance collects books to give away to children participating in programs at the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich.
This year, Boys and Girls Club members had a great time on October 20th digging through 3000 books to select just the right ones to bring home. The children picked out books for themselves, their siblings and teachers, filling up bags (donated by Coldwell Banker) that were often too heavy to carry.
We are grateful to our generous community for the quality of the books that were donated this year and in past years. A huge thank you to BGCG staff for helping with the book sorting, Greenwich Academy students for volunteering, book drives conducted at both Parkway School and Western Middle School, the GHS Roots & Shoots Club and to the Greenwich, Cos Cob and Perrot Libraries for their assistance with the book collection!
