The Big Book Drive will take place this Saturday at Lansdowne Mall in Richmond. Spearheaded by an SFU Project Management team, they will be collecting book donations that will go to the Salvation Army’s Family Support Services and other literacy-related programs.

The Big Book Drive

Organizer Joseph Choi told me by email: “All books collected will go towards the Salvation Army’s Family Support Services and their other literacy-related programs so that we can provide books to help low-income families and children.”

Items they would like to collect include textbooks, comic books, magazines (no adult material), novels, journals, and catalogues. The goal is 2,000 books of all genres that will go towards literacy programs in BC for all ages.

The Big Book Drive will be at Lansdowne (No 3 Road at Alderbridge Way, outside of Toys R Us) from 9:30am until 4:00pm on Saturday, February 26, 2011. They will host another book drive event March 19th and 20th.
