Hello everyone, first a quick note on RSVPing for these larger-style events:
Because a lot of these organizations use Hands on Atlanta, they can have people RSVPing through that site. This means that for an event that allows 40 people, it may fill up fast, or not at all. Because of that, I'll enable the RSVP here through meetup for a little while, but then cut it off well in advance so that I can guarantee a certain number of people to the venue. If we end up "overbooking" on meetup, then I'll cut down our count and take the first X number of people who signed up through us. I hope this makes sense. If you have any questions, just let me know. I don't see it becoming a problem unless we regularly get 15 or more people.

Agency: Books For Africa
Description: If you are looking for a fun, satisfying volunteer experience, join us at our warehouse!
Most African children who attend school have never owned a book of their own. For many children in Africa, the gift of books truly is a gift of hope. Since 1988, Books For Africa has sent over 20 million books to the children of Africa. We rely on volunteers like you to sort and pack the books for our shipments. No heavy lifting is involved. Volunteers should be age 12 years or older. Individuals or groups of up to 80 people are welcome to volunteer.
Volunteers give two or more hours of their time.
