Rowe book drive supports Save the Children
SCAN your shelves for unwanted books – Belmont MLA Cassie Rowe is collecting them to raise funds for Save the Children.
All books in new or gently used condition are welcome, including children’s books, fiction and non-fiction titles.
“We hope to have a few thousand books to donate from locals at the end of the drive,” Ms Rowe said.
“Every book raises money and we all know that every dollar makes a difference.”
They can be dropped into Ms Rowe’s office at 1/275 Belmont Avenue, Mondays to Fridays from 9am to 4pm.
The book drive will be running until August 18, when the books will be collected by local Save the Children volunteers.
The funds raised will go towards Save the Children’s local and overseas projects.
