Bernie's Book Bank Volunteer Opportunity

On Tuesday, July 17th from 9am-2pm, Back 2 School Illinois needs volunteers to help sort through several pallet boxes filled with children’s books. This volunteer opportunity will take place at the Bernie’s Book Warehouse (917 N Shore Dr., Lake Bluff, IL).

Volunteers will determine which age appropriate Back 2 School kit they will go into, tag the books with colored stickers that match the handle of the kit, and finally pack the books in boxes.

If you are interested and available for this event, we would love to have you join us. If you are interested but would need transportation from Chicago to Lake Bluff, B2SI will provide transportation for a number of volunteers. Lunch will be provided that day as well. Any questions or transportation concerns should be emailed to our Events Coordinator: SpencerPost@b2si.org.
