The United Way of Treasure Valley kicked off a huge event over the weekend and the only way they will hit their goal is to get book donations from people like you. The 5th annual Children's Book Drive started on Saturday, April 6th and their goal is to reach 100,000 books donated.

The difficult part of the mission is that the event is only going on until Friday, April 12th. Which means now is the time to look through your book shelves and put together a box or boxes of books that you can donate. Remember this is a Children's Book Drive so please put an emphasis on donating as many kids books as possible.

To make donating as easy as possible you here are a list of locations around the Treasure Valley that are accepting book donations:
