  National Youth Gathering

         Book Donations




ELCA National Youth Gathering is partnering with the City of Houston for book drive called “Blast off for Books.” Houston Independent School District estimates that 74% of the students in the district come from families who struggle to provide books for their children. We want to help ensure bright futures for Houston’s students. The books you donate will be distributed at community book fairs, camps and other events around the city. Also,
some donations will restock libraries that were affected by Hurricane Harvey. There are only asking for new or gently used books from their book list which can be found at the Welcome Center or clip here! We will be taking donations until June 10.
