United Way's Books for Kids program distributes books (donated by Capstone) to approximately 4,000 regional children every other month! We are looking for volunteers to help on the "Shipping Day" -- to help us load all the bags of books into the moving truck at American Red Cross (105 Homestead Rd, Mankato) and then meet down at Bulk Mail (851 Summit Ave, Mankato -- off of 3rd Ave) to unload. From there, the books are mailed directly to kids!
If you can help only with the loading at the Red Cross part and not the unloading, that is helpful too!
We have wheel carts. Please wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for physical work and outside conditions, as we wheel the books for a short distance outside to the truck. Bring gloves if you would like.
