Hello SLA San Diego,
We have a great opportunity available for you to make a difference in the San Diego community! Our SLA-SD Student Liaison, Sharesly Rodriguez, is spearheading our annual Words Alive book drive and needs your help.
Words Alive is a fantastic organization that collects new or gently used books for children and Sharesly’s goal is to collect 200 or more this year through donation boxes. She is looking for SLA folks who can help create collection boxes (about the size that holds printed paper) and host them at work or within their communities.
This is a fun and worthwhile effort and a great way to meet other SLA San Diego members. If you’re interested, please contact Sharesly directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope we get a record turnout!
2016 SLA San Diego President
Details About the Words Alive Book Drive:
Words Alive collects new or gently used books for children and youth (birth through high school) in English and Spanish for children from low income or disadvantaged communities. The books are to help awaken or sustain a love for reading. Ultimately, children from disadvantaged communities have an opportunity to build their home libraries.
My goal as student liaison for this year is to collect 200 or more! I am looking for members who wish to hold or set up collection boxes. Ideally, the boxes should be the size of box that holds printed paper and can be decorated. SLA members are encouraged to bring donation boxes to work or spread the word within their communities.
Adult books, textbooks, references books, magazines, self-help books, and torn and worn out books will not be accepted.
