Donations Needed for BookWorks Literacy Program

Goodwill's BookWorks childhood literacy program's children's book drive starts Feb. 1 and runs through March 15. People in Pasco, Hillsborough, Pinellas, Polk, Hernando and Marion counties are asked to donate new or like-new books for children ages 2 to 5.

Volunteers for Goodwill's BookWorks program read to children at Head Start centers. Each child also gets a book to take home.  This book drive will supply the program during the upcoming year. To donate books, attach a note indicating they are "For BookWorks" and drop them off at any Goodwill-Suncoast store or donation site. For store and donation site locations, call 1-888-279-1988, or go to

To volunteer as a reader, call Goodwill Community Relations coordinator Jinnie Kerdi at 1-888-279-1988, ext. 1013 or email
