Purple Up Book Drive - April 2021

Join the Sandhills Chapter of MOAA, The Country Book Shop, and Kiwanis Club of the Sandhills as we celebrate the Month of the Military Child!

Throughout April, community members, businesses, and organizations can make donations to the Purple Up Book Drive. All donations will be used to purchase books for participating schools that honor the military community and support the unique needs of military-connected children.

Books titles are divided by school level (Elementary, Middle, & High School) and book sets consists of three books for each school level. Schools can request a specific number of book sets for their campus. The book drive is open to all K-12 public, private, and charter schools in Moore County. If you school is not listed, please have your school administration team contact Rollie Sampson, Book Drive Coordinator, at admin@sandhillsmoaa.org.

Once all book set requests are filled, any remaining donations will be used to purchase "Extraordinary Military Kids: A Workbook For & About Military Children" By Megan Numbers to support K-5 students as they navigate military life and deployments. A special "Thank You" to the Kiwanis Club of the Sandhills for their commitment of $1000 towards the purchase of this book. The workbook will be distributed to school counselors at schools with high military student populations.
