Georgetown University Angel Book Drive

Angel Book Drive

The Project

We never forget the books we loved as children. The Angel Book Drive is an opportunity for members of the Georgetown University community to bring the gift of reading to children and young adults in the Washington, D.C. area who have limited access to reading materials. Each year, the University community donates thousands of books to children and young people in the D.C. community. We have distributed books to local schools, shelters, hospitals, health centers, and other organizations. Please join us this year by donating a copy of your favorite new or gently used children’s book or by volunteering your time to help sort donations.

Donate In Person or Online
