Giving Tree

Our 2015 Giving Tree collected books for the George Washington Carver Center School that had a non-existent library!

 

Every year during the holiday season, Bethany Beach Books puts up a little, miniature tree covered in miniature book cover ornaments. This is our Giving Tree and all books bought off this tree are donated to a local organization or school in need.

Our fourth annual Giving Tree collected books for a nearby school that didn't have a library! The George Washington Carver Center/School in Frankford, DE didn't have a library so with the help of our community, we decided to do something about it!

Over the holiday season, we collected well over 600 books to be donated to GWCC. We also sold special coupon tote bags for Small Business Saturday with 100% of the proceeds going toward the school. With the $500 raised through this fundraiser, we were able to purchase 4 bookshelves for the school to help store all their new books!

We are so proud of our generous community who have helped us create a library for GWCC. We even had members of our community reaching out & dropping off lightly used books directly at the school to help build their library. Thank you to everyone who has helped us build a library for the George Washington Carver Center!
