The Book Samaritan

Every year there are used curriculum sales…and most of my used stuff comes back home after the sale is ended.  Twice a year Jolanthe at Homeschool Creations hostesses the Curriculum Clean Out, and I do manage to give away a few things.  Yet my used, no longer needed, or didn’t work for us box of supplies has continued to grow.  

What’s a homeschool mom to do?

Well today I found out about a great group called The Book Samaritan.   This is a non-profit group based out of  Oklahoma, who take in donated curriculum and then ship it out to homeschooling families who have felt the financial crunch and can’t afford the needed supplies.

What??  Give away stuff?  To a stranger??  Yes, you can donate your used, unwanted curriculum and manipulatives to help out another homeschooling family in need.  Your donation AND your shipping fees are tax deductible, but that pales in comparison to being able to help another family to homeschool.

How to help:

* Book donations: We accept any used books, workbooks, flash cards, kits, DVDs, CD-ROMS, and school supplies. They will be catalogued for immediate redistribution.

* Cash donations: Be assured that 100% of all contributions will be used to purchase much-needed curriculum.

*Books, curriculum, cash contributions and postage are all tax deductible gifts.

* Please pray for our continued efforts to reach out to homeschooling families through this ministry.

Please forward donations to:

The Book Samaritan
1715 Grandview Ave
Pawhuska, OK 74056

NOTE: Shipping via "Media Mail" is the most inexpensive rate available. Just ask the clerk for the "Media Mail" rate when shipping books, curriculum, or other materials.
