As part of our 25 Acts of Kindness, the Full Circle Committee organized and hosted a book drive for Hickok Cole Architects and the local Georgetown Community. We donated 545 books, 233 CDs, 96 DVDs, 3 cell phones, and 1 laptop to Books for America. This included several large donations from industry partners and passers-by who noticed the sign in our lobby. Our donations will be distributed to a variety of organizations that might include youth centers, transitional homeless shelters, hospitals, schools, military bases, assisted living communities for seniors, veterans hospitals, and women’s shelters. Some of our very own HCA staffers, Lois, Quy, and Abi, saw the distribution process up close when they spent last Saturday morning sorting children’s books at the Books for America distribution center in Fairfax.

If you are interested in continuing to help, Books for America has a used bookstore in Dupont Circle where you can donate books at any time.  All proceeds raised from bookstore sales support the operations of Books for America.
