The registration period has closed for this event.


Registration open through Saturday, January 19, 2019


On Monday, January 21, 2019, we will be collecting donations of new or gently used books for elementary school children, ages 5-12. Your donations will be distributed to low-income students throughout the Kansas City metro to encourage literacy and a life-long love of reading!


To participate please click on the 'Register Now' button, and follow these simple directions:


  1. Collect books in any small bags or boxes (large bags and boxes are TOO HEAVY).
  2. Clearly label each bag/box as 'Children's Books.'
  3. Place the bag/box in a visible spot on/near your front porch by 8AM on Monday, January 21, 2019.
  4. Volunteers will pick up visible donations between 9AM-12PM. For your privacy, they will not knock, ring the bell or search around your property.
  5. Spread the word by sharing this page - the more books the merrier!
  6. That's it! Thank you for participating.
