Books for Boots is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides new and gently used books, movies, music cd's, puzzles, and craft items to injured recruits in our country’s military basic training installations.
As of August 22, 2023, we have shipped out over 790 books, over 200 movies, over 50 CD's, and numerous puzzles to injured recruits.
A small donation of just $5 could provide shipping for at least six paperback books, three hardcover books, or 15 DVDs!
Consider a Box sponsorship for $40 each box. This covers shipping expenses for a box of books for injured recruits. The majority of boxes are 17” x 11” x 13” and can hold anywhere from 30 large hardback books to over 50 paperback books and weigh about 35-45lbs. If the actual cost of shipping is less than $40, the remaining portion would apply to costs for shipping other items, such as movies, CD’s, puzzles, or craft items.
Gather your new and / or gently used books, movies, music CD's, puzzles, or craft items and drop off today. Please see our "How to donate items" page from our website menu above. **Please** ensure items meet our guidelines before bringing to a location - See below for guidelines
