The campaign is over! In case you missed it, here’s what happened.
In low-income communities, there is only one book available for every 300 kids. Our members ran the most EPIC book drives of all time (hence the name). After 8 weeks, 316,688 books were donated. A big, EPIC win for literacy!
Thanks to everyone who ran drives, and HUGE shout-out to these members who did the most epic things.

Carl Sandburg High School
This school's drive donated over 20,000 books (say what?!) for young people in their communities. When asked about why they participated, here's what they said.
"To some, books may be the chance to temporarily escape from the environment around them, putting hardships and instability aside. For others, it might be to relax, look at the pictures, and simply dream about being the main character in the storyline. Regardless of the purpose of reading, our mission was to spread the endless fantasy of literature to everyone. "
