— Volunteering at Books Between Kids — 9947 Harwin Dr., Suites B & C
Registration Link: TBA
Books Between Kids collects books for building personal libraries of elementary school kids in the Houston Area who are from economically disadvantaged backgrounds in order to build their reading skills during the summer. They hold book celebrations at the end of the school year where kids pick out books.
Volunteer projects vary depending on need, but volunteers often help count books, sort books, pack books into boxes, move boxes of books around the warehouse, prepare school inventory lanes, prepare boxes of books to be sent off to schools, or even clean and reorganize the warehouse. Come find your favorite book!
All volunteering is done at the Books Between Kids warehouse which is located at 9947 Harwin Drive, Suite B, Houston, TX 77036. (Please note that you will not be able to see 9947 from the street. Turn in between 9941 and 9949 Harwin Drive.)
Children as young as 5 are welcome.
All children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult when volunteering.
