We thrive based on the funds contributed by individual, group and corporate donors across the Charlotte community. Our cost efficient, high volume book distribution model ensures your contribution is making an impact on the students in our community.
It costs us around $1 to distribute a book to a local child. With every dollar that is donated, you are helping Promising Pages provide another book to a child living in the Charlotte area Book Desert. We invite you to become part of our effort to end the Book Desert with your own promise of support!
We are continually inspired by the companies, groups and organizations that recognize the need for a love of reading to generate higher literacy to create better lives – and who partner with us to make that a reality. We offer several ways for corporations to get involved and invite you to find out more today.
We are always in need of children’s books in any condition, especially those for pre-kindergarten through third grade. To coordinate a book drive in your neighborhood, school, business or place of worship, learn how here or feel free to contribute children’s books your family has outgrown.
Donations of fewer than 200 books can be brought to our 24-hour Southend donation bin across the street from 204 E. Peterson Dr. Charlotte, NC 28217. Look for the brown metal donation bin outside of the CBI warehouse fence. If you’d like to receive a donation acknowledgement, please be sure to include a slip of paper with your name, contact info and the amount of books you donated.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to donate more than 200 books and to schedule a time to drop off your books in person.
*Please note we do not have the capacity to pick books up.

Volunteering Your Time
We receive donations of thousands of books each month, but before books go out to our bookworms they must be counted, cleaned, stamped, and sorted.
- To help out, you can volunteer at our Operations Center as an individual, as a family, or as a group of up to 20 people. Even kids as young as age 8 are welcome to pitch in as long as they are accompanied and supervised by an adult.
- You can also host a volunteer event at your location, perfect for companies, schools, places of worship or other groups looking to give back to the community. Or you can assist with our in-school programming, Bookworm Bootcamp & Books on Break.
- Prefer to help out on your own terms? You can write bookworm letters, which are special notes from grown-up bookworms that are given our young bookworms in Title I schools to encourage them to keep reading daily.
