Donate Children's Books through July

July 10, 2019

Need to clean out your children’s book shelves? Pass those books on to other local children by donating them to thread!

thread is holding its annual children’s book drive in Anchorage this month. These books find a new home with local children at thread’s Book Party in the Park later in the summer.

Throughout July, you can donate new or gently used children’s books at the following locations:

  • thread office, 3350 Commercial Drive, Suite 203 (call ahead for help unloading)
  • Fred Meyer on Abbott (place in the box near the customer service desk)
  • Fred Meyer on Dimond (place in the box near the customer service desk)

The greatest need is for books for infants and toddlers, such as board books. Books for all ages of children are welcome.

Want another way to help? thread needs volunteers to help sort donated books into age categories. Contact Jordan Beckenbach at 907.265.3133 or [email protected] to learn about volunteer opportunities.
