BOOKS FOR ROTARY!!
On May 7th the Minden Rotary Club will again be collecting used books to send to 3rd World Countries. Drop off location will be the Presbyterian parking lot on 1st & Colorado from 8:00-noon!
Monetary donations to help with the large shipping costs are always accepted.
All donated books will be donated to the “Rotary Books for the World” project. Books are collected all across the US and transported to a shipping facility in Houston, Texas. There they are loaded into containers and sent to various locations all over the world.
This project originated in 2001 when a handful of Texas Rotary clubs shipped three containers to countries in southern Africa, each holding 40,000 books, overseas. By 2011, 26 containers were shipped. Last year, that figure soared to 40.
The cost to send these books to where they can be utilized can be overwhelming. Approximately $2,500 buys a container and $4,100 covers the ocean freight. Minden Rotarians will have a donation jar at the drop off site or you can mail a check to MINDEN ROTARY CLUB, 441 W LEXINGTON AVE, MINDEN NE 68959.
