2022 Pickle Elementary Book Sale

May 19 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Pickle Elementary Book Sale: Volunteer or Donate

Donate Children’s Books for Pickle Elementary Book Sale

Sale is Thursday, May 19 | 8:30AM-12:30PM
For fifteen years, FUMC Austin has partnered with Pickle Elementary School, and our regular book sale is a core ministry of that partnership. Our next book sale is Thursday, May 19 from 8:30AM-12:30PM. The book sale gives students at Pickle the chance to buy new and gently used books for a quarter. While we “sell” the books because school leaders wanted kids to feel ownership of the books they chose, we depend on donated books to make the book sale happen.

Donate any new or gently used books—current titles, please—for preschoolers through fifth grade (bonus points for Spanish/bilingual titles) by dropping them off in the SAN Library or in the bins off the Sanctuary Foyer on Sundays, May 8 or May 15. Reach out and invite friends and neighbors to donate, too! You may also contact Heather Schuelke to arrange pick up/drop off or to volunteer that day. 

No children’s books at home? Make a financial gift to purchase new books by giving online using the button below and choosing “Pickle School Books” from the drop-down menu.

Since 2007, we have distributed over 50,000 books to Pickle Elementary students. Help us make this another great year for the book sale!
