Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Street Watch -

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.
