BFK Warehouse May Distribution Shifts - Rainey's Team

Thursday, May 13th, 2021 from 9:00am to 11:00am (ET)
This has ended. If you attended, let the organizer know by recording your Impact!


***Important Note*** If you plan on attending multiple shifts, please understand that we're only permitting volunteers to register for shifts with the 1 staff member at a time. Ex.- You can't attend one of Justin's shifts on Wednesday morning and then one of Leslie's shifts on Thursday. The name of the staff member hosting your shift is in the title of each event. 

The 2021 Book Distribution season has begun! Students have started placing their book orders through our online platform and we're ready to begin the fulfillment phase. Come be part of the magic of getting more books to more kids.

Volunteers might expect any of the following during these shifts:
  • Fulfilling orders from students selecting books through our online platform
  • Packing books to head out to one of the Clarke County Elementary Schools
  • Transferring boxes full of books from tables/carts to pallets
  • Breaking down empty boxes, bags, and keeping up with recycling

Books for Keeps is maintaining strict safety guidelines in order to provide a safe work environment for all volunteers and staff. Adhering to the following rules is mandatory when volunteering in-person until further notice:
  • All volunteers are to wear face masks. If you do not have a face mask of your own, one will be provided to you. 
  • All volunteers must sanitize their hands when they arrive and as needed throughout their shift.
  • All volunteers must maintain social distancing protocols and provide 6 feet of distance between themselves and others while working in the warehouse.  
  • All volunteers are asked to leave any snacks or drinks in their vehicle and may excuse themselves to use them as needed.
  • All volunteers must answer the registration questions in the affirmative in order to attend a shift.
  • We do not have access to a public bathroom at this time and ask that you make the necessary accommodations prior to arriving. 
  • Books for Keeps reserves the right to excuse volunteers from the shift if any of the above rules are not followed.

Please reach out to with any questions you may have about any of the above rules.

***Important info on getting to the warehouse***

The warehouse is at 420 Athena Drive, near Athens Tech and Southern Brewing Company. Please follow the directions below. There is no signage at the road, so it is easy to pass right by it!
  • If you're coming from Hull Road/Hwy 29, you'll go over a set of railroad tracks. Our building is the third driveway on the right after the railroad tracks.
  • Look for the doorway with the blue awning facing the road.
  • When you pull into the parking lot, drive all of the way to the far side - you'll see a door with the Books for Keeps logo, next to a loading dock.

If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, we ask you not to register. We are doing all we can to align with best practices and keep our community healthy.
