The Book Bank Foundation’s “Shelter from the Streets” campaign seeks to provide new clothing, medication, shoes, books and words of inspiration for the less fortunate throughout the streets of New York City. Annually we go through the five boroughs, into shelters, into train stations, under bridges and bus stations to serve the underserved. Each year we collect donations of new products for the homeless, for children as well as those who have been subject to domestic violence.
We are kindly requesting that you and your company join us in our quest to help the less fortunate. We are seeking donations of time as well as in kind product from your company. Any surplus of product that you may hold would be put directly to use. Coats, shoes, toys, sweaters or anything to keep the homeless warm this winter will be greatly appreciated. The Book Bank Foundation is a certified 501 (c) (3) organization and all donations are tax deductible.
We also strive towards our goals by constantly seeking ways to empower, inspire children and build awareness with influencers on the importance of literacy and education. We spread this message to show the joys and benefits of literacy and education but we stress that illiteracy and lack of education can lead to poverty, drugs, and crime. We run book drives and conduct lectures to aid the youth as well as offering relief to those who have been affected illiteracy such as the disenfranchised. We do that in a effort to provide full circle support, both preventative and relief work.
