Is Thing Two at Your House?

Have a Minivan you’d like to Donate?

 

This is Thing One. (The van. The smiling man is our main driver, Elmer.)

Thing One has given, and continues to give great service. We can fit 54 cartons of books in Thing One. But dear Thing is 14 years old, and occasionally has down days (new radiator! new fan!) and we are thinking the Book Fair Foundation needs THING 2!

But it’s not just for the times that Thing One is under the weather— we are doing so many pick-ups (did you know we’ll pick up books from folks?) that scheduling is sometimes a challenge. And we also pick up leftover books from community library sales– and on Monday, we’re renting a second van so that we can fit in all of the great books we’re getting from our friends in West Milton. It would have been great to have Thing 2 along.

We are a 501c3 registered charity and because we will be using a second minivan ourselves, the IRS deems that (if you itemize your deductions) you can claim the full market value of the van you donate!

So, we hope that Thing 2 will be a minivan with sliding doors and a solid floor that is in reasonable running condition. If you think that your minivan might be the perfect Thing 2, give us a call at 937.999.4491 or send us an email at info@daytonbookfair.com, or a message through this site or our Facebook page. Or just come on over and see us.
