THINKING BOISE BOOK DRIVE BRINGS OVER 800 BOOKS TO LOCAL SCHOOLS
March 28, 2017

The first annual Thinking Boise Book Drive for the Boise Public Schools was held at the beginning of March. Thanks to our wonderful clients, neighbors, and friends, the book drive was a success!

Thinking Boise Book Drive Idaho

About 800 books and $500 in cash were donated. We’re still receiving books, so this number is sure to rise.

We are so excited to be able to donate these books to students at Whittier Elementary, Hawthorne Elementary, Fairmont Junior High, and Borah High School. These schools were identified by the district as needing the most books at each grade level.

Thinking Boise’s Book Drive was a really fabulous event and so much fun. We had a steady stream of community members and friends dropping off books and enjoying Guru donuts, coffee and hot chocolate (yum!) at our library hangout.

It took several trips to multiple cars to cart out all the books and deliver them to the school district. We plan to have another Thinking Boise Book Drive in the future, so save your books for us!

We are always searching for ways to benefit various schools in Idaho. The chance to enjoy your company while we do it is an added bonus.

We couldn’t do what we do without the help of people like you. Thank you!
