Friendsgiving & Book Drive!

YWLP Friendsgiving on Thursday, November 16th, at the UEAA Clubhouse (70 Mulberry), at 7pm. Come one, come all, please join us for a potluck!

Mark the date as tomorrow is our Friendsgiving! Come one, come all, come plus one, we’re inviting everyone to join in on giving thanks to the year so far. We have games, good company, and delicious food–how could anyone resist?

WHEN: Thursday, November 16th @ 7pm

WHERE: UEAA Clubhouse (70 Mulberry, 2nd Fl)

RSVP: https://goo.gl/forms/q0ETas1j6QNgmZyn1 (and see what others are bringing!)

In addition to our Friendsgiving, YWLP is also hosting a week-long book drive!

We will be collecting books at the clubhouse and donating them to NYC Books Through Bars, a non-profit organization that sends books to incarcerated people. If there is ever the right time to clear out your bookshelf (for more books, maybe?), what better time than now? (Please note: NO HARDCOVERS, only paperbacks in good condition!)

There will be a blue box set up in the Clubhouse where you can leave your books. What the organization is specifically looking for are paperbacks of:

  • African American History
  • Native American History
  • Latin American History
  • Mayan and Aztec History
  • Social Sciences
  • Memoirs and Fiction by Authors of Color
  • Mass-Market Novels: Mysteries, Thrillers, Sci-Fi
  • Mythology
  • How-To (Drawing, Origami, etc)
  • Dictionaries, Thesauruses, GED Studies, Atlases
  • Language Studies
  • Sudoku/Puzzles
  • Entrepreneurial Guides
  • Yoga and Pilates Guides

Hope to see y’all on Thursday!
