Give Time

Books Between Kids would be nothing without the help of our volunteers. During the 2015-2016 school year, our fantastic volunteers spent 3,250 hours to prepare over 260,000 books for distribution to approximately 36,000 Houston elementary school students.

Volunteering at our warehouse can be a fun and rewarding experience. Projects vary based on needs but may include counting/inventorying donations, sorting books, boxing books, helping to stock the sorting tables, and cleaning the warehouse. Our volunteer shifts are 2.25 hours in length and are held at the Books Between Kids warehouse (view the map on our FAQs page).


  • Children as young as 5 are welcome.

  • All children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Please provide 1 adult to supervise every 2 children under age 10 and 1 adult for every 5 children ages 10-15.

If you would like more information about volunteering or would like to discuss a group volunteer opportunity (with your church, business, or other organization) please email us at volunteer@booksbetweenkids.org or call us at 832-831-1402.
