AAUW Walla Walla Book Sale Press Release
The 57th Annual AAUW Book Sale was the must successful ever, with a gross income of $63,460. Of that total, $11,644 was from Collectible Books, primarily due to the increase in great donations. The largest categories in the regular collection were Children’s Books, Cooking, Biographies and Autobiographies, Science Fiction, and Fiction. Proceeds fund scholarships for local women returning to college, and educational projects and events.
Throughout the year members sorted books, picked up books from drop boxes and from homes, cut boxes to size, priced Collectible books, managed categories, lead sorts, took cardboard to be recycled, put up yard signs, handed out cards, and worked at the sale. With 282 shifts needed to run the sale, 100 members volunteered, so many people worked multiple shifts to make it work. Twenty Walla Walla Community College John Deere program student and staff volunteers, and the Whitman College women’s volleyball team loaded the boxes onto a semi. Sixty students from the Walla Walla High School and College Place High School Latino Clubs and the Walla Walla Community College women’s basketball team helped set up the tables and signs, and carried in the 1900 boxes.
The following positive comments were made by people using our credit card system, and by members:
Congratulations for holding up our book sale over the pandemic - and carrying it through to such a huge success. Thank you so much for your leadership!!
Thank you for working throughout the year to organize such a great event! We come every year and get a lot of great books. I will have some to donate soon!
Thank you for all of your hard work in setting us all up for success on this year's sale! So many people commented how impressed they were with the setup and books and how this was their favorite sale around. Many folks commented that they missed us these past two years and they can't wait until next year.
AAUW Walla Walla is very grateful to the community for their generous donations of books, CDs, DVDs and audio books throughout the year. There are seven drop boxes in Walla Walla and one in Milton-Freewater. The next Book Sale will be February 24-26, 2023
Proceeds from the AAUW-WW Book Sale fund scholarships for local women returning to college, as well as educational projects and events.
