All donations go to Woodbridge and New Haven public schools that are lacking access to technology due to the pandemic.

The book drop is open 24/7 and all items are being quarantined for the now-recommended 96 hour time period. We have almost 900 items still out that were due back on July 1. Do not fear the BILLED status on your account! Thank you!
