Donate now (although our book drive kicks off 9/9-9/13, you can donate now, just note that it is for BMA)!
Let’s make sure every child has books in her or his home, donate now to the BMA Virtual Book Drive! Estimates show that there is only ONE book per 300 children in Kansas City’s low-income areas. Reach Out and Read Kansas City (ROR-KC) works to bridge this gap by teaming with pediatric offices to distribute books and literacy advice during each well-child visit. ROR-KC needs your help to purchase new books for the children. By donating through the BMA Virtual Book Drive, you will maximize our impact by leveraging ROR-KC’s bulk purchasing power, and ensuring that those books most in demand are those supplied by this drive.
How to donate?
You give, you win!
Each day during the virtual book drive, BMA will draw from that day’s donors for prizes including tickets to the Brews on Tap ($40 value) and gift cards. Donate once and be entered into that day's daily drawing, or increase your odds of winning by donating each day during the drive, Monday 9/9 through Friday 9/13!
Would you also like to donate your like-new (very, very gently used) books for ages 0-5? Contact ROR-KC directly to coordinate a time to drop off the books at its offices by calling 913-588-0295.
