                                  We deliver books rain or shine

This is one of numerous examples of book collection and distribution.

Last Saturday, we served breakfast at this shelter on Gude Dr. in Rockville, with Kiwanis Club of Rockville.

We noticed that there was an entire library of books very few people were using. We suggested that they start boxing up the books they don't want, so that they could be removed. Thus, they would have room for fresh books of interest.

It was our intention to bring the books to other organizations which could use them.  We took a pause and realized that this is not a sustainable action.   It would keep us in the loop.  If we are going to help thousands of communities, the communities must be able to help themselves.
