Goodwill's BookWorks

A drive to support Goodwill’s BookWorks childhood literacy program starts Feb. 1 and runs through March 15.

People in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Polk, Hernando, Marion, Sumter and Highlands counties are asked to donate children’s books in good condition or make a donation to purchase books for the program.

Goodwill’s BookWorks program promotes literacy by putting books into the hands of children from low-income families. Goodwill volunteers read to children at Head Start centers and other locations and then present each child with a personalized book to take home. Last year BookWorks volunteers presented books to more than 38,000 children from low-income families.

To donate books, attach a note indicating they are “For BookWorks” and drop them off at any Goodwill-Suncoast store or donation site in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Polk, Hernando, Sumter, Marion or Highlands counties. For donation locations, visit or call toll-free 888-279-1988.

Another option is to make a monetary gift to purchase new books for the program. Just visit to make a donation.
