Last year after the tragedy of Sandy Hook, Reading With Pictures launched an emergency comic book drive to donate family friendly comic books to the families of that community. We were able to coordinate over 500 unique donations toward this drive.
This year, we will build upon that success while also joining in a national movement called #GivingTuesday. On December 3, 2013 we will officially begin accepting donations for our holiday comic book drive that will be donated to the children at Comer Children’s Hospital in Chicago, IL.
We are asking folks to donate comic books to this drive and will run the drive through January 3. We are asking for new and gently used comic books that are family friendly and all ages appropriate. Comer Children’s Hospital also has other needs as well and you can learn more about that here.
On a local level in Chicago we currently have two drop off locations. They also have great children’s comics sections too!
You may also coordinate a mailing of your donation to:
Reading With Pictures
4448 N. Beacon, Unit 2
Chicago, IL 60640
If you would like to start a local comic book drive for your own community, please reach out by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll assist in that.
