Event Details

Clothing: Wear closed-toe shoes (no sandals) - Some of the boxes might be dusty, so prepare to get a little dirty. 
 
Why: We have recently shipped containers of books to India, Swaziland, Pakistan, and South Africa. You can play a part in this large Education/Literacy project which is changing the world. For more information: go towww.rotarybooksfortheworld.org 

What will you do? Sort books by language (English/Spanish/French, etc), stack books into cardboard boxes, place the boxes of books on pallets, and shrink wrap the pallets. Rotarians will then arrange for the pallets to be sent to a warehouse in La Porte, loaded into 40' export containers , delivered to the Port of Houston, shipped via ocean freight, unloaded by Rotarians and then given...free of charge...to students and teachers in schools in other countries that need these books.
 
Do you have used books to donate? (textbooks, encyclopedias, dictionaries, children's books, etc.) If so, please bring them with you.

Organizer

Rotary Club of Houston Heights

The Rotary Club of Houston Heights was chartered April 18, 1939 with twenty-four members at the 130th Rotary District Conference in Houston.  The Rotary Club of Houston Heights was the host club of the District Conferences in 1950, 1962, and 1977.  In 1987 the Rotary Club of Houston Heights became the first club in the District to become a 100% Paul Harris Fellow club.  The Rotary Club of Houston Heights has produced more District Governors than any other club in District 5890 with nine District Governors coming from the club, five of whom are still active in the club.
