We Run and Write for a Cause
The Book Tree represents a passion for reading and the hope for worldwide literacy. We collect new and gently used children's and adult books each year to donate to a local school or a national literacy organization.
In addition to donating books, we will also accept online monetary donations on their behalf.
Burke County Literacy Council
Our goal is collect at least 50 books this year. They offer new and gently used children's books to doctor's offices, pediatrician offices, and the waiting rooms of Health Department and Social Services buildings.
McDowell County School System
We collected 21 books, including an original signed author copy of one book.
Greenville Literacy Association
Their mission is "to enrich our community by increasing the literacy and employability of our citizens." They offer GED prep classes, ESL classes, and private tutoring. The books we collected were donated to GLA for local families and also for their annual "The Really Good, Really Big, Really Cheap Book Sale".
