Volunteers are being asked to recycle their “gently used” paperback books and magazines for Veterans. Ask your family members and friends if they have any books/magazines that they would like to donate too! Close attention should be paid to the subject matter. Each book/magazine should be branded with an AT&T Pioneer label before being donated. You can label and donate your materials directly to a VA Home or Hospital in your geographic area or we can collect and donate them for you! Remember to contact the facility before making your donation to see what their current needs are. Contact Jackie Steffgen, Life Member Council President – firstname.lastname@example.org, 815-464-3007 if you are interested in participating in the project. She will provide you with the labels and some additional information.
