GoldenKeyUW aims to promote the pursuit of education, leadership, and community service. We choose to lead by example; excelling academically while opening opportunities for others to gain valuable leadership and service experiences. The book drive helps promote literacy programs around the world.
We are working with our partners, Better World Books (BWB). They keep books out of landfills, and put them into the hands of deserving peopling around the world. They are dedicated to supporting literacy programs around the world. They take the books we collect, sell them at discount prices to schools, libraries, and students, and then donate a portion of the profits to literacy programs. GoldenKeyUW has chosen to sponsor WorldFund (WF) through our book drive. WF trains educational professionals throughout Latin America; improving the educational foundation from the bottom up.
We accept all kinds books. Also, this quarter we are making it a competition. The person that donates the most books wins $25. We are having people place a sticky note on the inside front cover of all the books they donate, which we will tally after the drive is over. The person that donates the most wins!
