Homeward Books – Volunteer Book Sorting Opportunity @ POP's Storage Location, Riverside Business Park
Aug 11 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm
Homeward Books – Volunteer Book Sorting Opportunity @ POP's Storage Location, Riverside Business Park | Woodfin | North Carolina | United States

About the Homeward Books Flex Project

As a volunteer-led initiative, we need help sorting through the donated books. Books are divided into various categories/genres, and will be flipped through to remove any bookmarks, etc. Books will eventually be distributed to populations in need within our community. The only skills necessary are an interest in books and the ability to analyze genres by examining the books.

Notes about Homeward Books:

  • Comfortable dress and shoes recommended.
  • Lifting up to 30 pounds would be helpful but is not a requirement.
  • POP provides water and a light snack.

What Next?

Volunteers who have personal transportation and are able are also invited to help deliver these books to organization partners in Buncombe County. Please let us know your availability! The POP Project works with other literacy and advocacy agents in Western North Carolina to improve book access for inmates, homeless populations, impoverished children, and those in need.

Additional Information about Participation:

  • Youth volunteers age 12+ are able to attend with an adult volunteer. All youth ages 17 and under are required to bring a youth waiver to this project.

Giving Tuesday

Following our national day of thanks, then a full weekend of shopping deals in retail stores and online, is a day that has been recently dubbed Giving Tuesday. In 2012, the day was founded as a movement toward coming together “for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.”

This Giving Tuesday video concisely describes what the day is all about:

 

The POP Project encourages you to join the 10,000 organizations nationwide who are already involved in the movement. Give 10 minutes or give 10 hours, but find a way to give back to your community in a way that is meaningful to you.
