What makes for a successful book distribution? A spacious warehouse, enthusiastic partners, and amazing volunteers. Our latest distribution in Stockton, California had all three!
Over 50 fantastic volunteers, many recruited through Stockton’s Chamber of Commerce, came out to help distribute over 150,000 books. The work was intense: beautiful, large pop-up books such as Big Frog Can’t Fit In take up space. Within 3 days, nearly 11,000 boxes of books were processed and then loaded into UPS trucks or personal vehicles.
As you can see, we had to get creative – anything to get books to kids!
