Since announcing our relationship in late April 2006 at Phi Theta Kappa’s International Convention, more than 300 chapters have collected over 100,000 books, raising over $50,000 for their own campus projects! We now work with hundreds of Phi Theta Kappa Chapters across the country to meet their hallmarks of service, leadership, fellowship, and scholarship.
Since fall 2006, more than 90 Golden Key chapters throughout North America have run book drives. These efforts have resulted in upwards of 90,000 books for their designated non-profit literacy programs, and over $45,000 for their own campus projects. Golden Key has designated literacy as its primary service requirement – music to the ears of everyone at Better World Books.
The International English Honor Society Sigma Tau Delta is our newest National Service Partner. In 2008, Better World Books was selected to run the Sigma Tau Delta National Service Project. Many chapters are already participating and we are looking forward to a great ongoing relationship and lots of great books rolling in.
Circle K International clubs are dedicated to improving their schools and communities through service. Its student members belong to clubs in 15 nations throughout North and South America, the Caribbean, Southeast Asia and West Africa and collectively perform more than one million hours of service annually. Circle K club members at Texas A&M demonstrated the impact of service in action by running one of Better World Books’ most successful book drives, collecting 8,000 books during a single campus textbook drive.
