Led by Debbie Struk, the GFWC North Pinellas Woman’s Club has given thousands of children the opportunity to own and read a book. The club collects new and gently used books and distributes them to health clinics, camps, family centers, classrooms, after-school programs, foster care agencies, and even parades! This project has been recognized by the GFWC Florida Federation of Women’s Club as an outstanding community improvement program.
25,000+ books and counting!
Such large numbers of books would not be possible without strong community support. A big thank you goes to the Florida Future Educators of America (FFEA) chapter at Countryside High School in Clearwater. These students collect thousands of books in their annual book drives.
If you are an agency, school, library, or other entity in need of books, or if you have new and gently used books to donate, or know of an organization discarding of books, please email us or email Debbie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next Meeting: Tuesday, June 20, 2017
Books magically appear where children gather in our community.
