Book Drive Donations

Thanks to our generous virtual book drive donors, 6 boxes weighing 195 lbs and holding over 200 books arrived at AK Child & Family last week. These are all brand new books that will cater to the very diverse interests of the kids in our residential program. Fantasy, teen romances, graphic novels (comic books), sports stories, and nonfiction are all represented.


Books received thanks to donations from our book drive.

The best part is this is only the first half. This shipment used just $503.00 of the $1050.00 we raised during the drive. AK Child & Family has 1 year to spend the remaining funds. The First Book Marketplace is always adding new and exciting titles, so over the next few months we’ll be able to build a great collection of books to engage and inspire the kids in our care. Thanks to everyone who contributed!

Book lovers know you can never have enough books. If you are interested in donating more books, book store gift cards, or cash to purchase books, please contact Angela Rush at (907) 346-2101 or go to the Contact Us page then select the topic Donations.
