                            VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! 

                                The book delivery and sorting will take place at the Wake Education Partnership on Hillsborough Street. Volunteers are needed to take a few boxes of books on Thursday night and deliver them the next                                 day, Friday, March 28, to Wake Ed any time during the day. Their offices are located at 706 Hillsborough Street, Suite A. 
                                Volunteers are needed to assist with book collection at the event and need to arrive at 7 p.m. We'll also need some extra hands at the end of the night to pack up the books and load their cars.

                                *WAKE Up and Read also has a sign-up for this and other events, including the book-sorting on Saturday, which could be a massive undertaking -- they hope to have 40K books! That sign up is                                                     here:
