Book drive for Greensboro schools affected by tornado

Many UNCG departments and groups have been involved in the Greensboro tornado relief effort (some are listed here). One relief drive (below) has a Friday deadline:

As you may be aware, last week’s tornado devastated three elementary schools in Guilford County. The structures of these schools were severely damaged and resources such as books left unusable. Working in partnership with the Guilford Education Alliance, the UNCG School of Education has organized a book drive for the UNCG community to provide these classrooms with much-needed books.

  • How to Donate Used Books?

Donate gently-used books that you currently have that are appropriate for children in grades K-5. You can bring any such books to one of our drop-off locations: Jackson Library, the School of Education building lobby and the Office of Student Leadership.

  • How to Donate Books from an Amazon Wish List?

There are particular books for which the classrooms will have high need, and we have established an Amazon wish list with these titles. LINK: http://a.co/aHjvinE

Books purchased here can be shipped to the gift registry address, which is the School of Education’s Teaching Resources Center.

UNCG Teaching Resources Center
1300 Spring Garden Street
310 School of Education Building
Greensboro, NC 27402

The schools need these books immediately so that students transitioning schools can enter classrooms having an inviting and engaging atmosphere for learning. Ordering and dropping off books in the coming days will have the greatest immediate impact. The book drive will conclude this Friday (April 27).
