Book drive: Goodwill's annual BookWorks preschool literacy program continues through March 15. The program is seeking volunteers and donations of new or like-new books for children ages 2 to 5. The purpose of the program is to promote literacy by putting books into the hands of children from low-income families. Goodwill volunteers read to children at Head Start centers and other sites, then present each child with a personalized book to take home. This year, the program will expand to provide books to first- and second-graders. Donations of books should include a note indicating they are "for BookWorks." They may be dropped off at any Goodwill-Suncoast store or donation site in Hernando, Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Polk or Marion counties. The local Goodwill is at 4750 Commercial Way, Spring Hill. For other sites, visit goodwill-suncoast.org or call toll-free 1-888-279-1988; those interested in volunteering may call (727) 523-1512, ext. 1976.
