How It Works

How Does it work?

For each book drive, our Leaders+Readers staff work with student volunteers on 4 occasions to:

  1. Coordinate book drives and inspire creative marketing & advertising teamwork to start it all off. They will then host a week long all-school book drive.
  2. Sort donated books for quality and reading levels using interactive math games. Pack them for delivery. Receive & reciprocate buddy letters from recipient school students.
  3. Deliver books to recipient schools, alongside the student volunteers who collected all the books. Buddies meet, share a snack & a story. Our team then sets up a pop-up “CHOOSE + KEEP” Book Fair during lunch, recess and before school starts utilizing a portion of the books donated. Every student at the recipient school will have a chance to “shop” for their very own books to take home with them!
  4. Reflect, post-delivery, on this giving experience with the kids who organized the drive. Talk about how giving makes them feel and how they will want to do more giving in the future, and where.
