This is from our President Christian Kovac. We would like all our customers in Sarasota and Bradenton to help with this. Christmas is the season of giving even though every month should be. If you could take 10minutes to go thru your old books or pick one up when out shopping and then drop off to one of our locations. All Appliance will take care of all the shipping and we also will be doing a box of our own.
We thank you all!!
Ok the post bellow is from my good friend Daniel McCurdy (He does water damage restoration). I am doing a book-drive at my shop so all my local friends please bring books to All Appliance Parts – Sarasota FL. I will make sure they get ship out to him. Would like to ship these out the week before Christmas. I’m asking that you ALL step up..
“Yesterday I had the displeasure of discarding over 350 books about African American history and heritage. Additionally there were many classic novels and even children’s books. Folks, knowledge is power and when books are lost, so is part of our collective knowledge and past.
I was heartbroken and remain so today at seeing this homeowners tears at the loss of such a huge treasure of hers. She ran a library out of her basement for neighborhood kids for years, never asked for a dime to purchase or replace books lost or stolen…all done on her dime and time.
It’s people like her who make a true difference in her community…always quiet and mostly unheard of. I feel compelled to help her out and I’m trying to think of a way to do it without her knowing.”
