How to be a magazine “Recycler”

This explains how to be a “Recycler” to support our literacy programs.  “Bundlers” take a few additional steps to sort and package magazines and comics for delivery.  Learn to be a Bundler.

Please read the following and contact us with questions or to let us know what magazines you are sending.

Order Medium Boxes

Recyclers” – simply ship your magazines and comics to us.  The most cost effective way to do this is using medium sized flat rate USPS boxes from your local Post Office, or ordered online at no cost.  You will have a shipping expense for each box, which hold about 20 – 50 magazines, and can be shipped from your Post Office. Or you can print a postage label online and then schedule pick-up of the boxes at the USPS website at no additional cost.

Raise funds or donate now to support our local literacy deliveries – 100% of funds received supports literacy by getting magazines and comics to at-risk readers.

Recycle Magazines for Literacy

Magazines are very powerful literacy resources and we appreciate your support.  We are organizing local volunteer teams to collect, sort, and bundle magazines and comics for delivery to literacy programs.  Volunteer here.
