VA Book Drive

Last year MWSA collected and delivered to the Dayton VA more than 500 books donated by members. This year members who wish to participate by donating a book or books to the VA in Phoenix can do so by shipping them to the hotel and agreeing to mail them the week of  September 1st. Books need to arrive no later than September 19, 2014. Check with your post office for time required to get them there as that will determine the method of mailing.  If you participate you will need to email Jim Greenwald at to him know how many books you will be mailing and the title(s) so he can put together a list to verify with what the hotel receives. He needs that information prior to the dates you are required to mail the books, so a cutoff date for notifying Jim is August 29th. You will earn $1,000 in Buckaroos for each new book donated written by you and 500 for each new book donated that is written by another author as long as they arrive on time   [To date we have received 91 of our goal of 500].
