Lexie's Drive

Book Drive

After delivering over 10,000 books to the Kyle Busch Foundation down in North Carolina, I really wanted to continue my efforts locally. Over the past six years, I worked with two wonderful groups, Bernie’s Book Bank and Open Book/Bookworm Angels. Thanks to the generosity of my community, we delivered over 20,000 books to children who need them. I am not currently collecting new and gently used books for kids of all ages because I'm away at school but I encourage you to support these terrific organizations.

Bernie’s Book Bank
Studies have shown that children do much better academically if they have access to books in their home. Bernie’s Book Bank provides children with a small collection of books that they can have to call their very own. When talking to the founder of Bernie’s Book Bank I learned that many children in the communities they serve arrive at school without having ever seen a book in their lives! Bernie’s is working hard to change this, and I want to be part of that change.

Bookworm Angels / Open Book
Through their Bookworm Angels program, Open Book provides classroom libraries to teachers at schools in low-income neighborhoods. In Chicago alone, over 160 schools do not have school libraries, so these classroom libraries are needed very badly!
