We plan on starting Books From Gabriel book drive Monday, November 21st. We will let it run until Monday, January 23rd. We need all ages of children’s books New and Like New Condition. Anything really worn will be sent to Deseret Industries so please save us some time in sorting and donate only the best. Thanks for your participation.
We have several local businesses and schools who have offered to be drop off locations. We are so thankful for their help.
· Farm Bureau office’s 301 S. 4th Ave. & 275 Tierra Dr.
· Sonic Drive In 710 Yellowstone Ave. (Bring a children’s book in and get a free drink)
· Honks Dollar Store 720 Yellowstone
· Highland High School 1800 Bench Rd.
· Stalker Elementary 991 W. Center St. Blackfoot
· Stoddard Elementary 460 York Dr. Blackfoot
We will need to have all the books collected by Wednesday, November 25th so we can clean, label and categorize them that evening at the Pocatello North Stake Building. We will plan on starting at 6PM and go until we’re all done. We would love you to mark your calendars for that night to come and help. Last year we had such amazing participation and we hope to have the same this year. Then on the 26th of January (Gabriel’s 3rd Birthday) we will deliver the books to Portneuf Regional Medical Center, Bingham Memorial and Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center. If we don’t have time to do all the deliveries in one day we will finish on Friday, January 27th. Anyone who may be interested in helping with deliveries or has any other questions please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
