Eastridge Mall/San Jose Barnes & Noble Chooses Teen Challenge Family Centers As Local Non-Profit Recipient

San Jose, CA–November 1st, 2017– Barnes & Noble Eastridge Mall invites customers to give the gift of reading to children in need during the company’s annual Holiday Book Drive, taking place November 1, through December 31.  The Barnes & Noble Holiday Book Drive provides customers the opportunity to donate books to locally designated non-profit organizations. Last year, Barnes & Noble customers and booksellers provided more than 1.5 million books to over 650 local charitable organizations that provide services to children across the country.

Holiday Book Drive recipients throughout the country include schools, libraries, literacy organizations, family social service agencies and homeless centers.  This year, the San Jose/Eastridge Mall Barnes & Noble, located at 2200 Eastridge Loop Space #1420 will be collecting books for  kids at local non-profit Teen Challenge’s Family Centers. Customers can choose and then purchase any book K-12. Give it their cashier and we will be sure to deliver the book to Teen Challenge kids.

“The Holiday Book Drive is a favorite program of both booksellers and customers across the country,” says Tracy Vidakovich, Vice President, Business Development for Barnes & Noble.  “Customers often purchase and donate a personal childhood favorite as a way to pass on a holiday tradition to a child in their local community.”
