CLS kicked off March 2019 with a morning of giving back at Books for Africa’s warehouse to sort and pack books according to category and age level.   Books for Africa is the largest shipper of donated text and library books to the African continent, shipping over 40 million books to 53 different countries since 1988.  Volunteers work in their warehouses in Minnesota and Georgia to collect, sort, ship and distribute books to students of all ages in Africa. Their mission and goal is to end the book famine in Africa.

Books for Africa believes that education is the great equalizer in the world, and books are at the foundation of a strong educational system. Access to an education is one of the only opportunities young people have to end the cycle of poverty and attain a better quality of life than previous generations.  CLS is honored to once again assist Books for Africa in their global effort to ensure an education to those in need.
