Over the past month, generous North Carolinians have donated hundreds of books to help children affected by Hurricane Matthew escape from the storm’s devastation. The N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, in partnership with the North State Journal and Waste Industries, will continue to collect children’s books through Sunday.
New- or gently-used books may be dropped off at these locations:
• North Carolina Museum of Art, 2110 Blue Ridge Road, Raleigh;
• North Carolina Museum of History, 5 E. Edenton St., Raleigh;
• North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, 11 W. Jones St., Raleigh; and
• North Carolina State Capitol Historic Site, 1 E. Edenton St., Raleigh.
After the final collection day on Sunday, the books will be collected and delivered to shelters, schools and public libraries in the following eastern counties: Beaufort, Bertie, Bladen, Columbus, Cumberland, Edgecombe, Gates, Greene, Harnett, Hoke, Johnston, Jones, Lenoir, Nash, Pitt, Robeson, Sampson, Wayne and Wilson.
