Barnes And Noble Helping Area Schools

BOCA RATON, FL ( — Barnes and Noble in East Boca is helping area schools through its annual book drive. It’s a great way to give the gift of a good story to those who may not otherwise have access to what many throughout the area take for granted.

Barnes & Noble stores across the county invite customers to give the gift of reading to children in need during its annual Holiday Book Drive, taking place from November 1, 2013 to December 24, 2013.  The Barnes & Noble Holiday Book Drive provides an opportunity for customers, family, and friends to donate books through local stores for at risk schools in Palm Beach County.
Holiday Book Drive recipients throughout the county include schools, libraries, literacy organizations, family social service agencies and homeless centers.  This year, Barnes & Noble stores in Palm Beach County, will be collecting books for the Palm Beach County School District.
“The Holiday Book Drive is one of our most popular community partnerships,” says Sarah DiFrancesco, director of community relations for Barnes & Noble.  “Our booksellers and customers get to share the pure joy of giving a book to a child in need. Because each Barnes & Noble store chooses its local non-profit beneficiary, the donations are very personal.”
“Learning to read has the power to transform a child’s life and help ensure future success in school,” said Wayne Gent, Superintendent for Palm Beach County School District. “This partnership between the School District of Palm Beach County and Barnes & Noble provides an opportunity for the community to come together and focus on the importance of early literacy to the future of our young students.”
To find out how to participate in the Holiday Book Drive, contact Amanda Fuentes, Community Relations Manager at (561) 392-8478.
