This sign-up is for Team 2 with Rainey. It's important to sign up with the same team and BFK employee that you've been working with in order to prevent overlap of personnel. During this time of year, Books for Keeps would normally be in the libraries of any one of our 20 different elementary school partners giving away books to their students. But as we all know, schools are closed and students are stuck at home until further notice, so we're changing things up! Books for Keeps is bringing distributions online for the first time ever, and we need your help to get more books to more kids. We will be fulfilling online orders placed by students in our warehouse while also following strict safety guidelines that align with those administered by the CDC.
All Volunteers will also be required to complete a very short 5-10 minute check-in with a Books for Keeps staff member prior to their first volunteer shift. These will take place on Mondays and Fridays at 2:00 P.M. and Wednesday at 10:00 A.M. To register, find the volunteer opportunity on our GivePulse dashboard for the corresponding day and time that works for you.
***Important info on getting to the warehouse***
The warehouse is at 420 Athena Drive, near Athens Tech and Southern Brewing Company. Please follow the directions below. There is no signage at the road, so it is easy to pass right by it!
- If you're coming from Hull Road/Hwy 29, you'll go over a set of railroad tracks. Our building is the third driveway on the right after the railroad tracks.
- Look for the doorway with the blue awning facing the road.
- When you pull into the parking lot, drive all of the way to the far side - you'll see a door with the Books for Keeps logo, next to a loading dock.
