Here are the details on the Southern Rensselaer County Rotary Club Book Drive, which is the first of four quarterly goals for 2013-14 set by President April Dowd and approved by the Board of Directors.
WHAT IS NEEDED:
New or like-new hardback books (no paperbacks!) of all categories. Children’s books for pre-schoolers also are direly needed. Novels, histories, biographies, mysteries, how-to books, etc., appreciated.
Unity House of Troy which, for 42 years, has provided a wide range of services to meet the otherwise unmet needs of people in our community who are hurting and struggling — people living in long-term poverty, adults living with mental illness or HIV/AIDS, individuals and families who are victims of domestic violence, and children with developmental delays.
HOW DO I DONATE?
April and Bill Dowd will be collecting donated books at the September 5 and 12 dinner meetings. They’ll load up their car after the meetings, so don’t lug your books into the restaurant. Non-Rotarians who wish to donate books may call April at 238-1950 to arrange a pickup.
WHO WILL HANDLE THE DELIVERY?
A & B will take care of transporting the books to Unity House, which is planning to open its new facility at 2431 Sixth Avenue and the Hoosick Street Bridge on Saturday, October 13.
THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR GENEROSITY IN SUPPORT OF OUR CLUB’S WIDENING ITS SCOPE OF INFLUENCE IN THIS ROTARY YEAR.
