Ladies our club "Beyond Books" will be organizing a charity book drive for the month of December. Your assistance will be highly appreciated and greatly needed. This club is designed to do simply what it is titled and that is to go beyond books. My hope with starting this group has been that we would grow into a sisterhood of women who not only enjoyed books & various other activities but that we'd as a group participate in providing services to our community. The books that we collect will be donated to the Beagaddy Womens & Childrens Shelter, a few days before the Christmas holiday. These books will serve as great gifts to women & children who presently can not afford them but could appreciate the beautiful journey and escape that we all enjoy from a great read. So ladies please donate any gently used or new books of various topics & genres interest that you no longer need or think would be great for the women & children that we're serving. I will be collecting these books on the above mentioned date & time. If we should meet before then feel free to bring your donations at that time.

Thank you

    Hi Tamar,

    Today is the last day for Benefits Open Enrollment so I am working late. I will send you an email when I leave to see if I can get to you before its too late. Otherwise, I hope its ok to give them to you at our Book Discussion. From the looks of the posted comments, you may need to empty your vehicle to make room for more books. :) I have 203 books in three boxes for you. Its so wonderful to see us giving back. :)

    Candyce - You can donate your magazines to a women's shelter (STAR - Sisters Together and Reaching, across from the Pratt Library) or the House of Ruth.

    Hi Tamar,
    I car pooled today with my son so I am without a car until 8:30 in East Baltimore. I have about 4 boxes of books. I can bring at tomorrow's meeting.

    Hey Candayce, thanks for your willingness to contribute but I'm only collecting books for adults & children not magazines at this time. Thanks anyway.

    Tamar, I can't make it out today. However, I have some magazines I would like to donate, can we meet later this weekend?

    I will be inside at an identified table waiting on everyone to come in with their donations however if you have quite a bit of books I'll have my van outside so they can be put directly into my vehicle to prevent doing double work.

    Guess what? I thought the book drive was this friday. I gathered my books early cuz I was happy to clear the space. I also asked my coworker for donations too. Lol. Ok. That just means i will keep asking for book donations until its actually time to turn them in :-)

    December 14th will serve as the date & time that I will be collecting all donated books. The date in which the books will be presented to the center/shelter is still being coordinated. However if anyone would like to accompany me to present them to the center you are invited to do so. I will announce the date for the delivery upon it being scheduled.
    Thanks for your support.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
