BALTIMORE — The Maryland Book Bank is working hard to make a difference in the lives of children.

The non-profit organization has distributed more than 140,000 books since the pandemic began. It is now offering to mail five free books to students at title one schools in Baltimore and hope to expand efforts with your help.

"We now have a wishlist on our website. You can purchase books for the program which would be wonderful financial contributions will go towards shipping of the books to get these out to children's homes and then donations of any kind. We take the adult level, we take books for children so we're constantly taking books you can drop them off. It's touchless right at our loading dock. It's covered, it's protected from the elements you can do that 24 hours," Mark Feiring, Founding Executive Director of The Maryland Book Bank said.

Just last week, volunteers were welcomed back into the book bank's warehouse. With more hands on deck, the non-profit organization hopes to ramp up efforts to reach
more children throughout Maryland.
