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.
