This is a modified, in person volunteering opportunity. Detailed instructions and educational resources will be sent to you upon registration. You will meet with our nonprofit partner directly for the service opportunity onsite. A COVID waiver from both Generation SERVE HERE and our nonprofit partner will be required. YOU MUST SIGN UP BY June 25th via this link https://www.givepulse.com/event/214517-Generation%2BServe?pkey=c5e555480ac6dc356db16c7332de4d36 AND CONFIRM PARTICIPATION 48 HOURS IN ADVANCE.


This activity is best for ages 7 and up with a parent or guardian.


Join Books Between Kids to help sort donated books in their warehouse! Books Between Kids' mission is to build home libraries for children in need, one summer at a time. At your volunteer shift, there are various opportunities to participate:

  • Book Sorting -- Volunteers will sort and box donated books.
  • Bagging Books for School Distribution -- Volunteers will pre-bag books for distribution to our partner schools.

Volunteer safety is a top priority. There are several tables/stations spread throughout the warehouse to ensure the recommended social distancing protocols for volunteers. All volunteers must wear a mask and maintain social distancing.


All volunteers must also register with BBK using this private link: https://www.givepulse.com/event/214517-Generation%2BServe?pkey=c5e555480ac6dc356db16c7332de4d36.  


As you know, Covid has had a big impact on the volunteering programs of our partners. BBK must offer fewer shifts for even fewer volunteers per shift, all while serving the same number of schools and community partners. As a result, they must ensure that shifts are filled. If they don't have at least 5 registrants on the private link registration above 5 days before the shift, they may offer our time slot to an organization from their wait list. Registrants are also asked to confirm participation with us 48 hours prior to the shift. Thank you for your understanding!
