Every spring, WACO collects and distributes new and used children's books to disadvantaged children in the northwest and western suburbs. 

Multiple studies have shown that children who own their own books have a much higher chance for success and continued education. Studies have also shown that books in the home have an even greater impact for low-income children than children from more affluent families.

Our goal is to put books in in the hands and hearts of these children. But we need your help to do it. Please drop off new or gently-used children's books at any of the following five locations from now through Tuesday, May 14,2019.

Andigo Credit Union

426 W. Army Trail Rd., Carol Streams

1310 N. Meacham Rd., Schaumburg

1501 E. Woodfield Rd., Schaumburg

990 S. Barrington Rd., Streamwood


Heartland Bank and Trust Company
