Several of our 25 college textbook drives are still in progress, but I wanted to share some of the amazing ways our leaders have gotten creative this semester. During our retreat in March, the group was challenged by Mark Miller to really think outside the box of what textbook drive leaders have always done, engage their volunteers in brainstorming, and figure out NEW ideas on how to engage other students. They took the message to heart! Here are some of the things they came up with…
At UGA, people can take a photo when they donate books to go on the table – so cool:
Here is a collage from Furman with signs for people to hold, a table banner, and part of this semester’s trendy t-shirt:
Check out the cool spray-painting (and cookies!) at Auburn:
Probably my personal favorite, some Star Wars characters gave their books on Star Wars day at Georgia! (May the 4th be with you…):
And here is a HUGE banner a volunteer made at GCSU:
Finally, here is the result (courtesy of Belmont)! We’ve already gotten in over 12,000 books and many campuses are still in the midst of exams. Keep praying for great returns and for a huge impact on each one of these campuses. Say a prayer for our student leaders as well – they are working hard and doing an amazing job!
