Book Drive for the Saratoga Family Inn

As part of the PARP program, we will be collecting new and gently used books to donate to Saratoga Family Inn in Jamaica, Queens. We can accept books for children of all ages, as well as for adults.

Saratoga Family Inn is a homeless shelter run by the non-profit organization Homes for the Homeless, inc. Saratoga family inn serves over 200 families who are working towards the goals of self-sufficiency and permanent housing. To those ends, Saratoga offers many programs for residents of all ages. Day care is provided on-site for ages six months through six years; brownstone is an after school program for children in elementary grades; future link is an after school program for teens; there are also adult and family literacy programs.

We are fortunate that our classrooms and homes are filled with books. We are asking you to help less fortunate families create this important reading environment, in the shelter and eventually in their own homes. Your generosity in helping stock books for the families and the programs that serve these families sends an important message about how we feel about books.

There will be a drop-off bin in the main lobby all week long, Monday to Friday, March 12-16.

If you have any questions, please call:

Tracy Manzo or Stefanie Nelkens
