Postal Connections and iSOLD It Rally Communities to “Share Your Story” for Veterans Day

 Brands Launch Second Annual Book Donation Drive  For Active Duty Military and Veterans

FRISCO, Texas – In honor of Veterans Day, Postal Connections and iSOLD It are rallying communities across the country for the second consecutive year to “Share Your Story” in a month-long, nation-wide book donation drive.

From Wednesday, October 11 through Saturday, November 11 (Veterans Day), the brands are partnering with Operation Paperback to gather gently used paperback books to donate to active troops, veterans and VA hospitals in need. Postal Connections and iSOLD It stores across the country will be accepting donations from local residents, businesses and community members to send to troops serving overseas and on U.S. soil. Books must be gently used paperbacks that are in good condition (i.e., no books that are old, musty, yellow with bent spines or ripped covers). Suggested book genres include action, bestsellers, biographies and memoirs, fantasy, history, horror, mysteries, science fiction, true crime and children’s books for military families. Educational and homeschool materials are also welcome.

“The response to last year’s donation drives was overwhelming – we received more than 5,000 book donations from communities across the country,” said Fred Morache, CEO of Postal Connections and iSOLD It. “It really was inspiring to see the communities rally together in support of the nation’s veterans and active duty troops. We’re proud to again be working with Operation Paperback to help get these books from communities around the nation to our service men and women abroad and at home – it’s a small token of ‘thanks’ for the sacrifices they have made to serve and protect our country.”

In addition to overseas locations, Operation Paperback provides books to wounded warrior programs and veterans hospitals located across the U.S., as well as USO centers at U.S. airport transit points. The organization has more than 19,000 volunteers from all 50 states, forming a network of shippers that send upwards of 15,000 books every month to troops.
