Books Between Kids is a non-profit organization founded in 2012 to serve Houston’s at-risk children by providing them with books to build their own home libraries.
About 85% of Houston ISD’s elementary-aged children live at or below the poverty line. Priorities for these children and their families are food, clothing and shelter – all other items fall into the category of “want”. Research has shown that children growing up in homes without books, where books are considered a luxury, are less likely to complete a basic education than their peers who do have books available at home (University of Nevada, 2010).
Books Between Kids strives to change this scenario by collecting gently used books and distributing them to children in need.
OUR PROJECT: Join us as we help the organization with book sorting! This event is open to volunteers (ages 5+), and involves sorting and boxing books.
Projects vary based on needs but may include counting/inventorying donations, sorting books, boxing books, helping to stock the sorting tables, moving boxes books, and cleaning the warehouse.
