Got books? West Seattle Food Bank needs more

Just out of the inbox, from the West Seattle Food Bank:

The West Seattle Food Bank’s Bookcase Program is in need of all kinds of gently used books including children’s picture books, adult fiction & non-fiction, cookbooks, how-to & craft books.

Our Bookcase Program distributes more than 12,000 gently used adults’ and children’s books through generous donations from our community. Our clients love the program; they can take up to 10 books home to keep. Donation hours are Monday – Friday 9 am – 3 pm and we are located at 3419 SW Morgan St. on the corner of 35th & Morgan. Enter through the garage on Morgan, come in, and we have volunteers that can help you with your donation. Thank you so much.

    I can put together two or so large boxes (as in 30 pounds or more) of books but as I do not drive I have no way to get them there.  Can’t lift heavy stuff as I am aging.If there’s a contact at the Food Bank who might be willing to help me help them by having someone pick them up I’d love to donate.  I live in South Delridge close to Westwood Village.Or if someone knows who I could talk to there?

    Awesome! I just purged my cookbook collection and haven’t gotten around to donating them yet. I’ve got two boxes of them! I will bring them over soon.

    I’m in the same boat as Jim P.  Have boxes of good books, but no way to get them to Delridge.  Maybe a volunteer could do a scheduled one-day pickup?
