Activity Description

Join the Generation SERVE Literacy in the Bag Team at the Texas Tamale Warehouse to sort and organize books collected from the Literacy in a Bag Book Drive to distribute to Houston schools! Volunteers will sort and organize books collected in the bags to be redistributed by Literacy in A Bag to Houston and surrounding-area Title I Elementary and Middle Schools. These books help stock school libraries, classrooms and create at-home libraries for students. All adult books are donated to Friends of the Houston Public Library.


If volunteers have any books they want to donate, they are welcome to bring them the day of the event.
