Children and young adults in need will be getting a nice gift thanks to two Aloha United Way groups, Society of Young Leaders and Hawaii Cares.

Roughly 50 volunteers sorted and packed 9,200 books for 20 nonprofit organizations... like Hawaii Literacy, YMCA Honolulu, Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies, March of Dimes, Parents And Children Together, and Read to Me International.

Barnes & Noble workers and customers donated the books. This is the 6th year AUW partnered with Barnes & Noble.
