Aventine Hill is Hosting a Book Drive for San Antonio Youth Literacy


Aventine Hill is collecting new and gently-used books now until December 23rd for San Antonio Youth Literacy (SAYL). Our own Donna McIlveen, Recruiting Manager, Executive Search, is on the SAYL Board and volunteers in their Reading Buddies program. We are honored to support this great cause she chooses to invest her time in.

SAYL is a non-profit that provides one-on-one reading assistance to elementary school children. SAYL’s goal this year is to provide books to every child in eight Title 1 schools in San Antonio - double the number that were distributed last year.

With your donation you can help make every child a reader! The books you provide will be read again and again by their proud owners and other children in the family. Even parents can improve their reading ability by reading to or with their children. In many cases your donated books will be the only books in the child’s home. Your donations are greatly appreciated during this Holiday giving season.  

The books should be suitable for children in grades Pre-K through 6: picture books, chapter books, fiction, or non-fiction. SAYL does not accept and distribute religious books. Books may have some light marking, such as occasional underlining or a child’s name (which will be covered before distribution). Damaged/torn books are not accepted.
