Hope Christian Church seeks used books for fundraiser
Want to get rid of your used books? We are raising money through donations of new and used books, CDs, DVDs, records and audio books. We have a drop-off donation container to collect these items from community members who’d like to re-purpose their used goods while also helping the church raise money. The group will be paid on an ongoing basis for all items collected in their donation container. The gray book donation container, distinguished by its purple and yellow ‘Got Books?’ signs, is located in the parking lot of the church at 211 Montowese Avenue, North Haven. This program is an ongoing fundraiser and donations can be made by the public at any time. All funds raised through the collection of these donations will benefit www.specialtouch.org. An organization whose goal is to provide disabled individuals around the United States or their families with a summer camp. Your donations help sponsor individuals who would not be able to attend without your help!
