Children’s Book Drive
Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich
Annual Book Drive: October 2023
As part of Greenwich Reads Together, the Alliance collects books to give away to children participating in after-school programs at the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich. Last year’s giveaway took place on the afternoon of October 19th.
BGCG members had a great time digging through over 2000 books that were piled high on every table. There was both excitement and mayhem as the 300+ children scrambled to select just the right ones to bring home and share with their families. Bags were overflowing!
We are grateful to our generous community for the quality and amount of books donated over the years. A special thanks in 2022 to Parkway School, GHS Roots & Shoots Club, Whitby students as a part of the PYP exhibition and to the Greenwich, Cos Cob and Perrot libraries for their assistance with the book collection.
