Book collection

Can you donate just one book?

Please consider donating just one new or very gently-used book this holiday season. Final collection date is Thursday, Nov. 15 and collection bins are located campus wide. Every year the Holiday Parade Float Committee initiates a community-related service project that relates to the parade theme. In honor of this year’s theme, “Christmas Stories,” the Float Committee will be collecting books for local children (to be distributed at the Back to School Store hosted by the Green Bay Campus in summer). The need is for books of kindergarten through middle school reading levels. Please do not donate holiday books. Direct questions to Jena Richter Landers, richterj@uwgb.edu.
