Literacy ends poverty. Reading is where it all begins. Join us.

At Work

It feels good to share the magazines and comics you love and they are very much appreciated and enjoyed.  Here is a sample email you can send to your colleagues to collect and recycle magazines to new readers.

Magazines and comics are great – we love to get them and read them. Please join me in recycling “gently read” magazines and comics to new readers – homeless families… moms and kids in domestic violence shelters… foster kids… via food pantries, youth mentoring, and job training programs… etc.

I’ve set up a collection box for any magazines or comics you’d like to share. They should be in good condition, with no cut or torn covers or pages, or moisture damage. Don’t worry about mailing labels – We’ll remove or mark them out with a permanent marker, and then cover up the spot with a clean gift label.

Any magazines that a child or adult would enjoy are needed. Kids magazines are especially needed.

Thanks for helping to feed families hungry to read.

Learn more about how to collect, sort, and deliver clean, gently read magazines with no torn or cut covers or pages to kids and families in shelters and other literacy programs.

Find sample posters and other guides here.

Then ship the magazines to us. Contact us to let us know if you are shipping by USPS, UPS, or FedEx, so we can send you our Best receiving address.

USPS flat rate medium boxes are the most economical for shipping. Media or Library mail rates cannot be used to ship magazines.

We are trying to improve our local team capabilities. We are an all volunteer effort. Please share this with anyone who might be interested:
