A-B Tech Helps POP Deliver Books to 5 Locations for Our First Days of Impact Opportunity

The POP Project is fresh off our first Days of Impact volunteer and book delivery day with an amazing team from A-B Tech Community College. And we couldn’t have asked for better weather!

In just a few short hours, ten volunteers from A-B Tech helped us sort, count, pack, and deliver OVER $5,400 worth of books to five organizations and agencies around Asheville and Buncombe County – all in one afternoon! Books for a sixth location were prepped for a final delivery on Thursday morning.

Their donation of time and effort ensured that hundreds of people within our community, including children and veterans, have a greater access to books, and many have their very own books to take home.

Thank you, A-B Tech!

Days of Impact is Hands On Asheville-Buncombe’s new semiannual block of volunteer days that pairs workforce volunteers with local nonprofits, schools, and public entities. 2016 marks the POP Project’s sixth year of participation (including hosting Day of Caring opportunities from 2011-2015). In those six years, POP and our various Day of Caring/Days of Impact volunteers have delivered over $30,00 in books during these single-afternoon volunteer opportunities alone. POP encourages you to contact Hands On Asheville-Buncombe if you and your co-workers are interested in participating in October 2016.
