Book Donations & Distribution Volunteers

NetworkPeninsula / Book Donations & Distribution Volunteers

#GiftofReading facilitates book donations and distributes books to inmates in the Hampton City Jails. There are several ways our community can help and get involved. We are currently holding a Dictionary drive, donations of Dictionaries and other paperback books are collected at Dog Eared Books located 52 C Old Hampton Lane, Hampton, VA. Volunteers looking to donate their time can learn more about the experience by watching the video below or reading the attached articles. The link to apply as a volunteer is: https://hampton.gov/DocumentCenter/View/18307/Volunteer-Application-PDF?bidId=
