Donate a children's book and support children in reading and development.

The CAPCommunity Foundation will be collecting new or gently used books from July 28th through August 4th for the Read and Feed organization in Wake County. Drop books off in a donation box in the Exchange on the 16th floor of the CAPTRUST Tower. Anyone outside of Raleigh can have their donated books shipped to the CAPTRUST Tower attention Meagan Caruso.  

Please read the specific book criteria here.

While it still feels like the middle of the summer, the beginning of school is just around the corner. Read and Feed supports children in Wake County with reading skills while providing an evening meal. Children who build reading skills also increase confidence, social skills, and early childhood development.
