Chapters recently wrapped up successful Book Drives on April 30. A few of these chapters utilized creative ideas to collect as many books as possible for their deserving recipient organizations.
Chapter 157 at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, Louisiana, had a fun and eye-catching theme for their book drive—"Monstrous Spring." They created monster-themed book collection boxes to put around campus and surrounding areas. Part of their strategy was to create a social media buzz around the boxes by asking donors to take “Monster Selfies” while they donated and share by using the hashtag #NSUBookDrive. They also set up a Facebook page and website to garner interest in their project.
After their book drive was completed, the local library to which they had donated the books asked if they could use the colorful collection boxes for their summer reading program!
We appreciate all of the thought and creative energy that went into planning such a successful Book Drive.
