Wanted: Brown Paper Bags

PackedBooks

Every week we pack and ship more than 60 packages of books. To keep our costs down, we recycle brown paper bags—and now we’ve run out of bags.

So we’ll be happy to take that pile of bags off your hands. Just drop them off any Sunday afternoon, 2–5pm at 4511 N. Hermitage Ave. (Sunnyside and Hermitage). We’re only two blocks from the Montrose Brown Line stop and there is plenty of free street parking. Look for our doorbell at the top left of the church entrance.

While we’re at it, another big packing need is tape. We go through yards and yards of it every week, so we’d also appreciate donations of 2″ clear packing tape.

And of course our biggest need is always postage. If you can, just click the Paypal button on the right. You’ll be helping us get more packages of books into the hands of the women we serve.
