Building Impact is hosting a back to school drive to benefit after school programs and other organizations that support youth literacy; We will be collecting new or gently used books for children grades K-8 from August 12th to September 2nd benefiting Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center, Middlesex Human Service Agency, Friends of the Children and Pioneer Charter School of Science.
In the past, Building Impact has collected over $70,000 in donated items through our donation drives! We know that with your support and the simple effort of gathering old books, we can make an impact and give the gift of reading a book to a child.
To learn more about how to get a Building Impact donation drive in your building or any other questions please contact us at Volunteer@Buildingimpact.org.
