Books For Africa (Old)
Volunteer at Books For Africa’s warehouse!
Most African children who attend school have never owned a book of their own. For many children in Africa, the gift of books truly is a gift of hope. Since 1988, Books For Africa has sent over 20 million books to the children of Africa. We rely on volunteers like you to sort and pack the books for our shipments. No heavy lifting is involved.
Volunteers should be age 14 and older and 12-13 years old with chaperone. Individuals or groups of up to 80 people are welcome to volunteer.
Volunteers give two or more hours of their time and meet at our warehouse on:
- Monday through Friday from 9 am–3 pm
- First and third Saturdays of every month from 9 am–2 pm
If you are looking for a fun, satisfying volunteer experience, join us at our warehouse!
VOLUNTEERS MUST BE WEARING CLOSED-TOE SHOES IN ORDER TO SERVE.
If you have a group of 40 people or more, please e-mail Jen Hale and we can see if accommodations can be made.
This project site is located in Atlanta, GA. Court-ordered volunteers are permitted and this opportunity is wheelchair accessible.
