Alameda’s Books Inc. Collecting Shoes for Haiti

Books Inc. on Park Street aims to help everyone on the Island with some spring cleaning.

Used shoes are being collected this month and will be donated to Haiti.

After the Caribbean Island’s devastating earthquake of January 12 that killed some 230,000 people, roughly 1 million Haitians are homeless and in need of supplies.

So, go through those closets and fill up an old bag or box with a few fairs of shoes. This is certainly one of the easiest ways we can help another island in need.

Thanks to Books Inc., at 1334 Park Street, for doing this. The shop is managed by Nick Petrulakis and hosts a story-time reading session at 11 a.m. every Saturday.
