I have received unanimous approval from the CS mods before posting this thread (thanks guys!).
My son is participating in a book drive and I would like to request donations for any books you could send. The books will be used to stock a library at the Col. Robert L. Howard State Veterans Home currently being built in Pell City, Alabama.
The book drive is part of a merit program for my son’s Boy Scout troop. I know that some people have distaste for the BSA (especially in light of the recent announcement regarding their refusal to change their policy on gay scouts). I fully understand and respect that. I would hope, however, that you don’t discourage others to donate if they wish. I do understand that part of this donation is your paying postage to get it here so I really appreciate it!
We have some local official drop locations, but I am assuming most of you guys are not local. If you would like to send books, they can be sent to one of the locations and I can PM you the address. Unless I am inundated with generous souls who want to send books for the veteran’s library, and then I’ll take a chance on posting it here! We will be collecting until the end of August.
Thanks so much. I have never done a thread like this before so please ask if you have any questions and I’ll answer as they pop up!
If it would be easier for me to post the address I’ll do so. I just wasn’t sure what to do about that.
