Is there going to be an opportunity to donate to Books for Schools this year?  I have some extra credits I'd love to donate.

It has, in the past, been once a year, near Thanksgiving. It will be on the banner when it starts up. It will also be in the newsletter.

Thanks for the reminder!  I want to do that again this year too.

I'm also watching for an opportunity to donate to the military campaign.

Thanks I couldn't remember when it ran last year since I didn't have extra credits I didn't pay attention.  I'll keep my eyes peeled around Thanksgiving, then.

I was also very curious about the donations for schools and military, so thanks for the heads up!

Thank you for the heads up!  I donated last year & plan to donate again this year.

If you don't, you lose your apple.  Last year the school donations filled up real fast.

They did go fast!  Maybe there'll be more schools this year!

Well not all the donations to schools go thru that once a year program.  When members here have died, sometimes the family asks for "remembrance" donations of books to schools--that's how I did my credit donation to a school this year.
