Our job at MTW is to run the business and our lives, and we need book donations to have this opportunity. There are many ways to get involved and gather the books we need to keep MTW’s doors open:
Clear off your bookshelves and donate to More Than Words!
Tell your friends and family to donate their books – phone, email, text, and tweet!
Organize a book drive – at your business, school, place of worship, or any community! Click HERE to download our helpful Book Sourcing Packet. It has everything you need to run a successful book drive!
Become a Book Ambassador and help us set up drives and partnerships to ensure we always have good books coming in our doors!
More Than Words depends on your book, CD's, DVD's, and Video Games donations to grow, thrive and employ and empower youth! Here are some of the ways your books help us move our business and our lives forward.
More Than Words holds us to a high standard, and that influence helps us stay out of trouble. Before MTW a lot of us were on the streets making poor decisions, and now we’re running a business and taking charge of our lives!
Working at More Than Words has given us the opportunity to learn all parts of the book business, from the discerning differences between a novel and memoir so we can classify the books we receive to skills related to customer service, operating a register and shipping books all over the world.
We also learn what it means to be professional, especially when public speaking, conducting tours, and hosting events. With books and MTW's high expectations and support, we can gain job skills and experience, get our diploma or GED and move on to jobs, college and a good life.
Not only do we learn skills by selling books, but the earned revenue also makes it possible for More Than Words to exist. The revenue not only helps pay for the rent and our team’s paychecks, but also enables MTW to provide us workshops that teach us how to budget our money, plan our education, and build a resume. We also go on site visits to learn more about different companies and colleges; even things as simple as touring a college campus or vocational school can help us determine our future goals. Without MTW we wouldn’t know about these options.
Donated books help our business and us to grow, continue our work, and help more youth in the future. From all of us at More Than Words, thank you for your generous support and time. Please stop by sometime to shop, have a cup of coffee, or just say hi!
