Donate a Book to a Local Student this Season through the annual Holiday Book Drive
The eighth annual Holiday Book Drive is taking place November 1-December 12, 2020 thanks to the generous support of Capstone Health Alliance and Barnes & Noble Asheville. Despite the challenges of this year, United Way's Women United is once again joining forces with our volunteer center, Hands On Asheville-Buncombe, to collect books for elementary and middle school youth for the holidays and show them what we're able to do when we come together and Live United. All donated books will be distributed to programs serving diverse, underserved communities throughout Buncombe County.
Last year 2,800 books were collected both online and through our wonderful program partner Barnes & Noble Asheville. Since the drive's inception nearly 13,000 books have been collected to support our local students thanks to your incredible support.
