A few (more) special needs

I think you'll be surprised by the sorts of things Books for Keeps needs right now. It's certainly an eclectic list! Can you help? Contact Melaney at givethembooks@gmail.com

Pumpkins: Can you donate pumpkins for the Halloween Book Drive? We'd especially love a giant pumpkin to use as a prize. We need them by Tuesday Oct 26th.

On-Site Pumpkin "Artistes": Could you carve a pumpkin at the Halloween Book Drive, while kids ooh and aah around you? We're especially hopeful someone artistic will carve a giant pumpkin we can use as the prize for most books donated. Oct 27th, 5-7PM

Party Setup & Decor: The Halloween Book Drive would be a lot more festive if someone with style & imagination swooped in to rescue us from dollar-store decor. Party is Oct 27th, outdoors in the Locos picnic area, Harris Street. Take our party and run with it... we'll give you ALL the credit!

Legal and Financial Guidance: We're looking for some help getting our 501(c)(3) efforts off the ground. And we have $135 in our bank account. If you're the pro-bono-minded sort who wants to help a good cause, we could really use an attorney and a CPA.

Strong, Muscular Man (or woman!): During a "book sort", this person will hang around doing very little until a box is full and ready to be moved to storage. Saturday Oct 23rd from 2:00-4:00 OR Tuesday Nov 2nd from 4:00-6:00.

Media Specialists: We're looking for media specialists to help us manage our wish lists and develop our distribution programs.

Sort Room Decor: We're grateful for the free sorting space, but it's white concrete block and looks very much like a prison. No budget, no ideas. Can you help?

Storage Containers: We always need more storage containers. Sturdy, stackable plastic bins work best.

That's it for now. I hope you'll consider helping out. Contact me (Melaney) at givethembooks@gmail.com.

Oh - If you don't see something that appeals, send me an email and tell me what you're good at. I'll put you to work!
