Courtenay Rotary is kicking off this year’s campaign with the unveiling of their new donation boxes.

Distributed throughout the Valley, Rotary Book Bins will be in place year round as a convenient dropoff for book donations.

Rotary Book Bins can be found in Courtenay at Driftwood Mall, Thrifty Foods, Coastal Community Credit Union and Canadian Tire. In Comox they are located at Comox Mall and Quality Foods.

There are many more locations to drop off your books at retail locations in the Comox Valley, look for the Books For The Cure dropoff posters.

Also accepted in the Rotary Book Bins are used eyeglasses in support of Project Amigo, a non-profit organization serving the poor children of Colima, Mexico. The team at Coastal EyeCare take these donated eyeglasses to Colima and fit them to the needy children.

The Books For The Cure Book Sale will take place at Comox Centre Mall from Nov. 5 to 10. Proceeds will go towards cancer care and other worthy community projects.
